Art Lenehan, managing editor of The Record, left the New Jersey paper on Thursday. Editor Frank Scandale, citing company policy, declined to detail Lenehan’s departure. “Art’s a good man and we wish good things in the future for him,” he said.
Lenehan offered this comment:
I don’t have a lot of criticism to offer because, far as I’m concerned, the owner, Mac Borg, is a shining star of integrity. That whole family has been a pillar of integrity in American journalism for 75 years. I’m proud to have worked for them and I’m proud to have been associated with that staff. I love them all.
Lenehan began his journalism career in 1972 as a reporter. He had been managing editor at The Record since 2001. He was assistant managing editor/electronic news at The Star Ledger from 1995 to 2000.
