City editor steps aside, reporter quits over OxyContin series

Romenesko Memos

Orlando Sentinel city editor Sal Recchi will stay in the post until a successor is found, "and will then step into another senior editing role to be identified in time," says a staff memo. Doris Bloodsworth, author of the flawed OxyContin series, leaves the paper on Friday. She submitted her resignation on Monday. "I want to thank her for getting as far as she did in the paper's self-examination process," writes Sean Holton, metro news associate managing editor.
