We reported last week that Mike Seely, editor of the Seattle Weekly, is leaving to work for a jingle-writing company, with Seely saying at the time there are "no other changes imminent that I'm aware of." But today Seely announces that the publisher, Kenny Stocker, is also out. He will "will leave the paper at month's end to become Executive Director of Account Management & Ad Operations for the Cheezburger Network," Seely writes.
For his part, Seely insisted that his departure was totally unrelated to Sound Publishing recently buying the paper. Likewise, Stocker writes today in a statement: "This has nothing to do with Sound Publishing."
What further "no imminent changes" that have "nothing to do with Sound Publishing" will we see next? Asked by phone if the editorial staffing would change, Seely said today, "not as of right now."
