Adario Strange has resigned after one year at the alt-weekly, Gawker reports. "My goal was to change the paper into what it could be and I'm happy that we accomplished that," says Strange, who took over for Harry Siegel in the wake of the Muhammad cartoons controversy. "Having accomplished those goals, I am happy to get back to what I had been doing for the prior four years, making independent films."
UPDATE: Arts Editor Jerry Portwood will take over as editor of the New York Press, Gawker is now reporting. In addition, Managing Editor Natalie Dolce was fired resigned last week, according to Gawker. CORRECTION: AAN News has been informed that Dolce was not fired as originally reported by Gawker, but that she resigned from the Press.
