A Change in Leadership at SF Weekly

It's so hard to say goodbye. ...

Dear Readers,

I am sad to announce that, after careful deliberation, I have decided to leave SF Weekly to focus on pressing personal and family matters that will need my attention for the next couple of months. My resignation takes effect on March 3.

I will be passing the torch on to our arts editor, Peter Lawrence Kane, a mind-bogglingly talented journalist whose enthusiasm for San Francisco culture is infectious. I have every confidence in Peter’s vision and leadership, and I look forward to seeing the amazing things that he has planned for you.

San Francisco is a city like no other, and it has been an incredible privilege to lead a dedicated staff of people who take pride in showing the world what a weird and wonderful place we live in. 

I extend my sincere gratitude to Glenn Zuehls, the publisher of San Francisco Media Company, and Michael Howerton, the vice president of editorial, for their support and understanding as I came to this difficult decision. 

Dear readers, I look forward to serving you again soon. Keep in touch.
