Reader Moves On Post-Yablon

By Chuck Sudo in News on Dec 15, 2010 7:46PM

Reader editor Kiki Yablon worked her final day at the paper yesterday and Michael Miner, who has detailed the struggles and shrinking resources of the paper for years, captures his final moments in dealing with her. Miner writes that Reader publisher Alison Draper called Yablon's resignation "bittersweet" and that she expects a new editor to be named by mid-February. Miner's peeks behind the curtain at the Reader have been engaging reads, both in print and on the blog. As more staff has left the paper, we've long viewed Miner's dispatches as keeping the flame of the paper's past alive, and Miner himself as the canary in the coal mine: if he goes, all bets are off.
