AmNewYork Loses Publisher

Back in late September, amNewYork lost its Editor-in-Chief, Diane Goldie, to Newsday. Now the daily free paper is losing its Publisher as well. According to the New York Post, Paul TurcotteamNewYork’s Publisher since last year — is leaving his post at the end of this month.

There is no word on what Turcotte will be doing once he leaves or what will happen at the top of amNewYork, but there is obviously a lot of work needed to be done to right that ship.

AmNew York EIC Moves to Newsday

Diane Goldie, Editor-in-Chief of amNewYork, is leaving her post and heading to Newsday. The New York Post reports that Paul Turcotte, amNewYork’s Publisher, is looking at all options for Goldie’s replacement. One obvious candidate is Mae Cheng, the paper’s Managing Editor.

Both amNewYork and Newsday are owned by Cablevision.

amNewYork Launches iPad and iPhone App

AmNewYork, the most widely distributed (and maybe the most widely discarded, but keep trying Metro!) daily newspaper in the city, has launched an iPhone and iPad app. The app comes equipped with all of the content found in print, and even allows users to download previous issues.

Publisher Paul Turcotte says of the apps, “The introduction of this mobile application extends our reach and allows readers to get their news anytime or anyplace. Our active NYC reader will now have access to the paper on the go, day or night.”

The apps are free and available in the iTunes store now.

Kelly Killoren Bensimon to be am New York Columnist

Kelly Killoren Bensimon used to be a writer for Gotham and an Editor at the now-shuttered Elle Accessories, but she’s most widely known for her role on the reality TV show Real Housewives of New York City. But maybe now that she’s going to be a columnist for am New York, people will start associating her with her original passion.

And before you dismiss the column, Bensimon told Keith Kelly that “It will be a little bit of everything: fashion, food, accessories, restaurants, sports, the arts.”

That’s right, the column – which debuts May 5th – will cover everything, so you can just take that Negative Nancy attitude somewhere else mister.

Newsday Prepares To Go Behind Paywall Next Week

newsday1022.jpgCablevision-owned Long Island paper Newsday is preparing to go behind a paywall on October 28.

Although Newsday announced plans to charge for its online content earlier this year, we just noticed a note about it on the site this morning.

Access to Newsday.com will be free to current Newsday subscribers as well as those who get their Internet access through Cablevision’s Optimum Online, and the site is currently asking all visitors to register before the paywall goes up. Anyone else will have to pay $5 a week for limited access to the site, and there will also be an e-edition option that will cost $19 for a four-week subscription to $195 for a year.

Newsday has made a number of changes in recent months, updating its logo and front page and revamping its Web site. Last month, the paper’s publisher Tim Knight resigned from his post, and Terry Jimenez, the publisher of amNewYork, the free paper also owned by Cablevision, was appointed to take his place.

Newsday Publisher Knight Resigns After 5 Years

knight.jpgTim Knight, the publisher of Cablevision-owned Long Island newspaper Newsday has resigned from his post. He will be replaced by Terry Jimenez, the publisher of amNewYork, the free paper also owned by Cablevision. Jiminez will now serve as Newsday‘s acting publisher, although Knight said he would stay on until November 1 to help with the transition.

In a letter sent to staffers yesterday, Knight touched on some of the challenges he has faced as publisher in the last five years:

“I am proud, as a team, we successfully addressed the circulation
misstatements and, in the process, strengthened relationships with our
advertisers as well as created a stronger circulation department. We
undertook a number of changes to the paper to better focus our
resources on providing Long Islanders with unique and valuable local
news and information. A recent effort by the newsroom to expose the
abuse surrounding the state pension system resulted in widespread
changes to better protect taxpayers. And, importantly, we recently
re-launched newsday.com, which will allow us to better provide our
subscribers with a unique and valuable multimedia web experience.”

However, beyond saying it was “the right time to let others move our business forward,” Knight did not give a reason for his departure. You can read more of Knight’s memo, as well as a memo from Tad Smith, president of Cablevision’s local media unit, after the jump.

Since Cablevision purchased Newsday last year, the paper has undergone a number of changes, from a new layout (that looks more like amNewYork), to a new Web site, launched in July.
