Tom Finkel Named Editor of Village Voice

Tom Finkel has been named the next editor of the Village Voice. Finkel is a veteran of Voice Media Group (previously Village Voice Media). He served as managing editor of the Miami New Times from 1989 to 1997, then shifted to editing City Pages for four years. Finkel most recently served as editor of Riverfront Times, where he has been for the past 10 years.

“Tom understands our media business at a high level,” said VMG’s executive editor, Christine Brennan, in a statement. “He has been one of our most progressive editors in balancing print and web journalism. I know I can entrust the Voice to him, and that he’ll do great work there.”

Finkel is succeeding Will Bourne, who stepped down rather than implement more staff cuts.
