Subject: My Next Chapter
I will be leaving my Managing Editor post at the Queens Tribune effective Jan. 31 to become the Associate Publisher of the Long-Islander Newspaper Group, an affiliate the Tribune purchased two years ago, started by Walt Whitman in 1838. My role will be to expand the business of the four newspapers, to prepare the group for growth, to oversee the editorial content and to increase the market and circulation of our papers.
Brad Groznik, our Assistant Editor, will take over as Managing Editor effective Feb. 1. Any Queens-specific information, stories, pitches and suggestions can be made to him. He will receive all e-mails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working in Queens for the last seven years, and I look forward to continuing to work with you in the future. Until I get settled in the new office, in beautiful Huntington, NY, along the Long Island's North Shore, which will not be until Feb. 5, please direct any e-mail and correspondence to my personal Gmail account. After Feb. 5 you should be able to reach me at email@example.com.
Thanks so much for working with me over the past few years, and I look forward to continue working with you on many upcoming projects.
