Nobody can say that New Jersey’s The Star-Ledger has made it out of this economic crisis unscathed. Far from it.
Now Star-Ledger‘s publisher, George Arwady, will be leaving the paper to go to work for The Republican in Springfield, Mass., which is also owned by the Star-Ledger‘s parent company, Advance Publications (which also owns Condé Nast). Meanwhile, The Star-Ledger‘s new publisher will be Rich Vezza, president of Penn-Jersey Advance Newspapers.

Full memo from Arwardy after the jump.
