Orlando Sentinel | Jim Romenesko

Orlando Sentinel Editor Mark Russell is leaving the paper "as part of a restructuring," Jason Garcia reports. His responsibilities will pass to Avido Khahaifa, whose title will remain director of content. Khahaifa is also director of content for the Sun Sentinel.



Sun Sentinel Editor Howard Saltz will now report to Publisher Howard Greenberg, Greenberg says in a memo to staffers.



The Tribune Co.-owned newspaper named Russell editor in 2010. He replaced Charlotte Hall, who retired. At the time, Khahaifa said promoting Russell was an "easy decision." Russell has been with the paper since 2004.
