Arndt resigns as editor of Crain’s Chicago
Michael Arndt has resigned as editor of Crain’s Chicago Business, reports Robert Feder.
Feder writes, “In an email to staff, Arndt announced his departure, effective November 30. ‘Actually, I do have a real job plan, but I can’t share it with you just yet,’ he wrote. He joined Crain’s in 2010 as managing editor and was promoted to editor in 2012.
“Speculation that Arndt’s days were numbered was fueled by the appointment last month of Jim Kirk to the new position of publisher and executive editor, supplanting Arndt as head of editorial operations.
“Coincidentally, in an earlier tenure at Crain’s as chief of editorial operations, Kirk was the executive who promoted Arndt to editor, succeeding Joe Cahill, who became a columnist.”
