Josh Wood, a staff writer at Louisville-based newspaper The Leo Weekly has resigned. His tweet reads:
“This is my last week at LEO Weekly. Last week, amid another round of layoffs/cost reductions, it became clear I would no longer have the room to do the kind of original reporting I’ve been doing for the last 18 months. So I decided to resign.”
Wood has freelanced for The Washington Post, The Guardian, Louisville Magazine, The New York Times, Al Jazeera, The Christian Science Monitor and The Independent.
He also served as a Middle East correspondent at The National and as a correspondent covering western North Dakota’s oil boom and its impact for the Associated Press.
Wood has a B.A. from The George Washington University.
