Top Editors Leave Village Voice

Will Bourne, who became editor-in-chief of The Village Voice in November, and Jessica Lustig, the deputy editor since January, are leaving the weekly publication.

They met with the staff at 11 p.m. on Thursday and said that Christine Brennan, executive editor of Voice Media Group, had instructed them to cut five positions from the 20-person staff. Rather than implementing the cuts, they resigned and left immediately.

The tumult at The Village Voice has been something of a pattern as the weekly and its ownership have struggled to come to grips with declining revenues and increased competition for readers and advertisers on the Web.
