Martin Newland, who some might remember as deputy editor of the National Post, will leave as editor of the UK's Daily Telegraph at the end of the month.
(Actually, an error in the Beeb story: “Before becoming Telegraph editor, Mr Newland edited Canada's The Morning Post.”)
An excerpt from the BBC story:
Mr Newland, 44, was appointed in 2003, before current owners the Barclay brothers took over last year.
The BBC's Nick Higham said this had left him in “limbo”, as it had been impossible to make any “major strategic decisions about the paper”.
The Telegraph had been losing sales to rivals which had ditched the broadsheet format, he added.
'Could not continue'
Mr Newland will leave at the end of the month.
His departure follows the recent appointment of John Bryant as editor-in-chief of the Telegraph Group.
A Telegraph source said: “Martin felt that he could not continue in his position since the appointment of John Bryant as editor-in-chief.”
Mr Newland said editing the paper had been “a privilege”, adding: “It has been a marvellous experience working with so many great journalists and building the newspaper's reputation as the UK's market leader.”
