The Village Voice, after months of turmoil and layoffs, has named a new chief editor. He is Erik Wemple, editor of Washington City Paper.
Wemple will be the legendary alt-weekly's fourth editor in the past year. It is now owned by New Times Media of Phoenix, which owns a chain of weeklies. Wemple has spent his entire journalistic career in Washington, so will be an outsider in New York City.
He will start his new job in July. New Times has said it is trying to get more reporting and less opinion in the weekly.
"Erik Wemple stood out in a process that went on for months as I reviewed applications and interviewed journalists from major American dailies, national magazines and alt-weeklies," said Michael Lacey, executive editor for Village Voice Media., in a Wednesday release. "Wemple's savvy and grit are reflected in the newspaper he edits. I'm looking forward to his leadership, as well as the speculation and second-guessing sure to commence with this announcement."
