The rumors that have been swirling about the fate of Kevin Convey have finally come to a screeching halt. The end result? Convey is out as Editor-in-Chief of The New York Daily News. He’s being replaced by Colin Myler, according to a memo obtained by Capital New York.
In the note, Mort Zuckerman, the paper’s Chairman and Publisher, praised Myler. “The New York Daily News is a great institution of American journalism which will only get better under the leadership of Colin,” he wrote.
You might recognize Myler’s name. He was the former editor of News of The World, and during his tenure the paper was involved in that tiny, awkward phone hacking incident.
Great hire Zuckerman!
