Will Bourne Returns to Village Voice as Editor

It's retro Voice month.

The Village Voice has brought former editor Will Bourne back for another go at the role.

Bourne previously served as the paper’s editor for just six months. He resigned after former Voice owners asked him to cut staffers when they previously told him there’d be no layoffs.

Voice owner Peter Barbey said Bourne reached out to him shortly after he purchased the paper. “He impressed me with his enthusiasm, his capability and his vision,” Barbey told Politico.

Bourne is just the latest Voice staffer to return to the paper. The Voice rehired Melissa Anderson and Michael Feingold earlier this month.
