On Monday, Don Forst submitted his resignation as editor-in-chief of The Village Voice and sent the following memo to the paper’s staff:
I have submitted my resignation today as editor-in-chief to Judy Miszner, effective December 31, 2005. A number of prospects have presented themselves and I think this is an opportune time to explore them.
These nine years have been exciting for me because of what this paper does and what it represents to the city; and that’s because of all of you. I am proud of what we have accomplished together.
I thank you for sharing your talent with me and wish you and the Voice good times and great fortune.
