Rowe resigns as Oregonian editor, says there are too many top-level editing positions

Oregonian | Willamette Week
Sandra Mims Rowe has been editor of the Newhouse family's Oregonian since 1993. Executive editor Peter Bhatia succeeds her. || Rowe tells her staff: "As we have gotten much smaller as a newsroom, it is also clear we have too many editing positions concentrated at the top of the organization. Over Thanksgiving I wrestled with the number of layoffs we would need and determined it was best to start by removing my own salary from the budget."
