E&P Update: Mitchell And Strupp Both Out At Venerable Publication

editor and publisher coverForbes reports that both Greg Mitchell and Joe Strupp will not be continuing at Editor & Publisher under its new owners.

“The move left E&P fans in shock,” wrote Forbes. “Mitchell and Strupp are the twin engines of some of E&P’s best editorial work, notably its award-winning coverage of the Iraq war…Mitchell says the motivation can’t be financial–neither he nor Strupp draw big salaries.”

Mitchell posted on E&P In Exile yesterday:

I am out as editor after eight years, and the great Joe Strupp as senior editor (after 1,976 scoops in 12 years). … Strupp and I may carry on here in some form but you should go to my personal blog here. Strupp can be reached at one of his many blogs here. Thanks.

UPDATE: Thanks for more than a thousand messages of outrage and support via Twitter and emails so far.

This move leaves just four editorial staff at the magazine.
