As The New York Daily News turns… The latest in the soap opera like action at the paper? Last night Gretchen Viehmann, the Managing Photo Editor, walked out and is rumored to have resigned. The New York Observer cites two sources on this, so we’re guessing this must be true.
There will likely be more staffers leaving the Daily News in the weeks to come — especially if Arthur Browne does end up taking the EIC position from Kevin Convey — but let’s give credit where credit is due. Viehmann allegedly made her departure as dramatic as possible, and FishbowlNY appreciates that.
We just received word from Jennifer Mauer, Director of Communications at the Daily News, that Viehmann isn’t as dramatic as we thought. She did resign, but there “was no dramatic “walk out.’” Viehmann will be with the paper until the end of the month.
