John Solomon Officially Out At TWT

John Solomon, who’s been missing at The Washington Times since the shake-up on Monday, has officially resigned, effective Nov. 6.

But when Jonathan Slevin moved up to acting president and publisher on Monday (the 9th, if you’re keeping score), replacing Tom McDevitt, he didn’t mention Solomon’s resignation, Politico reports.

Solomon joined TWT in January 08, when he was hired away from the Washington Post.

David Jones, managing editor for print, and Jeffrey Birnbaum, managing editor for digital, will co-run TWT on an interim basis.

Shakeup At TWT

Three top execs at the Washington Times have been “relieved of their duties”, according to a statement issued from the paper and reported on by the Washington Post.

Times president and publisher Thomas P. McDevitt, chief financial officer Keith Cooperrider and chairman Dong Moon Joo were ousted in a move some speculate to be based in economic necessity. Others theorize that the firings reflect a power struggle between the three sons of the paper’s owner, Unification Church founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon.

Former vice chairman Jonathan Slevin has been named acting president and publisher; the other two positions remain unfilled.

Publisher McDevitt was, the Post reports, new executive editor John Solomon‘s “chief protector.” It is unclear what will happen to Solomon now.
