Double Pulitzer Prize winner? Sorry, no space on board

Philadelphia Inquirer Editor Out as New Owners Take Control

By Jeremy W Peters/NYT
The Philadelphia Inquirer has been through a lot in the last few years: bankruptcy, two new owners and layoffs, just to name some of it. It has now lost its editor, the newspaper veteran and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Bill Marimow, who will step aside as the paper's new owners prepare to take over.

The paper made the announcement public via Twitter late Thursday afternoon. The announcement said Mr. Marimow would remain at the paper but did not specify his role. He spent some time as a senior editor and executive at National Public Radio, but it was at The Philadelphia Inquirer where he made a name for himself. His first Pulitzer came in 1978 for distinguished public service; the second in 1985, for investigative reporting.
The paper's new owners, a consortium of some two dozen financial institutions, bought the paper from Philadelphia Newspapers, a group of investors led by Brian P Tierney that went into bankruptcy last year.
