Bay Citizen | Press release
Lisa Frazier, who has led The Bay Citizen from its inception in 2009, says for personal reasons she’s asked the board to begin searching for her replacement. “I set out to transform an idea into a reality and to build the foundation for that reality to continue,” says the departing chief executive. “I’ve created jobs in a field of journalism that is disappearing, in a recession, but to do so in a way that has a sustainable infrastructure.” Frazier’s announcement comes six weeks after Jonathan Weber resigned as Bay Citizen editor-in-chief to join Reuters. She was a partner at McKinsey & Company before joining the nonprofit online news site — a New York Times partner — in 2009. The Bay Citizen notes in its story that Frazier’s $400,000 salary was often criticized in the media. || Just announced: Bay Citizen and Texas Tribune launch open-source publishing platform.
