Mort Zuckerman May Be Ready to Replace Kevin Convey at the New York Daily News

Time for some newsroom gossip!

We hear from Gawker that the troubled New York Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman may already be looking for a replacement for editor Kevin Convey, who only came on board last July after prior Daily News editor Martin Dunn abruptly left.

We also hear from Gawker that Daily News isn’t making money at the moment, that Zuckerman wasn’t happy about Convey putting Donald Trump as “Sideshow Don” on the cover (though we at FishbowlNY were thrilled!) and that the Daily News is so cheap that Adam Lisberg, the Daily News‘s City Hall bureau chief, quit because of it.

Yes, that’s a full serving of Daily News-related, anonymously-sourced gossip. We will refrain from commenting on the above, only to reiterate: we thought the “Sideshow Don” cover was a stroke of genius.
