Examiner Says Farewell to Digital Managing Editor

Tim Richardson, the digital managing editor for the Washington Examiner is saying farewell after only 8 months. He is moving to WaPo to be their Senior Digital Editor/Producer and will help manage their online team.

The announcement from Examiner’s executive editor Stephen G. Smith says, “While here, Tim worked wonders with a website that — let’s face it — was trying to find its way. He put it on a sound course, worked tirelessly to keep it smart and fresh, made digital converts of editors and reporters who were mainly oriented to print, and taught us a great deal about the future. Through it all he was a gracious colleague and trusted friend.”

Lickity Split: Washington Examiner Brings On New Asst. Digital Editor

That was fast.

Last week Kevin Glass abruptly left the Washington Examiner after being there less than four months. All sides claimed it was a peachy ending. Today Editor Steve Smith announces the new hire of Las Vegas Sun‘s Tim Richardson. Richardson will fill Glass’s shoes as Asst. Managing Editor of Digital. This should be a smooth transition considering he was Managing Editor of Digital at The Sun. But maybe they could have at least given him a better title instead of making it sound like he has been demoted? He did allegedly jack up The Sun‘s page views in his 18 months there. He also formerly worked as a multiplatform editor for Wapo/Newsweek Interactive. Washington’s doors seem to be opening easily for Richardson — his wife, Cara, snagged a job as an editor at USA Today.
