Arthur Browne Moves to Deputy Editor at Daily News

The chaos that enveloped the Daily News newsroom last week has settled a bit, leaving Arthur Browne second in command to Kevin Convey as Deputy Editor. The New York Post reports that while things have calmed down, nothing is certain for Convey because, “If Browne is the new Deputy Editor, it’s only a matter of time before Convey is gone.”

Browne has been with the paper for many years, and earned the nickname “Chucky” because of his unique ability to withstand many previous tenuous moments at the Daily News:

Browne has been one of the more resilient editors in Daily News history. He was fired once by Mort Zuckerman when the real-estate developer took over the paper in early 1993, but showed up the next day as the newly appointed editorial page editor.

That sounds more like a George to us than a Chucky.
