It’s Splitsville for Kevin Glass and Examiner

Kevin Glass and the Washington Examiner broke up last week. He says it was amicable.

“I did leave the Examiner last week,” Glass said in an email to FishbowlDC. “Not for political reasons or cultural reasons or vision reasons – it just wasn’t the job for me, didn’t particularly fit my skill set, and I’m moving on to other opportunities. Management and I parted on amiable terms. Right now I’m doing a bit of freelancing and trying to determine what’s out there.”

Editor Stephen Smith, who wrote a playful, effusive memo on Glass back in July when he was hired for a newly created position of Online Asst. Managing Editor, agreed the split was friendly. “Perfectly amicable,” he wrote. “He just didn’t feel it was the right job for him.” Before the Examiner, Glass worked at for four years.

We’re especially glad to hear that Glass doesn’t have vision problems.
