SHARE Tribune Editor Resigns

The Chicago Tribune’s editor, Ann Marie Lipinski, is stepping down. In a memo to the staff on Monday, Lipinski said that there is no one reason for her decision, but that professionally, “this position is not the fit it once was.” Lipinski has been editor since 2001. She is being replaced by Gerould W. Kern, who joined the Tribune in 1991. Her resignation comes two months after George De Lama, the paper’s managing editor for news, announced he was leaving after 30 years.
