Christopher Frizzelle is replacing Dan Savage as editor of the Seattle alt-weekly, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports. The 27-year-old Frizzelle has also worked at crosstown rival the Seattle Weekly, where "he was fired for leaking internal tidbits to the Stranger and trying to get a job there," according to the P-I. His time at the Stranger has thus far included stints as books editor, and most recently, as arts editor. "I'll report to Dan, who is now editorial director, and everybody else reports to me," he says. Asked what changes he wants to make, he said none. "The paper's really good right now. I work with 20 of the most talented people I know."
