The Birmingham News is reporting that Barr Nobles, who served as editor of the Birmingham Business Journal for seven years, has left the weekly publication, one of the American City Business Journals’ newspapers.
The News described the departure as amicable, and Nobles said that there was no disagreement between him and the paper’s publisher, Melanie Dickinson. Dickinson declined comment.
The News story said, “Nobles, who calls himself a ‘newspaper gypsy,’ has worked in the industry for 35 years, starting his career at the Savannah Morning News. He worked for the Nashville Banner, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Memphis Business Journal before joining the Birmingham Business Journal.
“He and his wife Jayme plan to stay in Birmingham, he said, where he hopes to remain involved in the business community.”
