Chron's No. 2: Out

Posted By on Thu, Jun 21, 2007 at 1:28 PM

We've just confirmed that Narda Zacchino, the Chronicle's deputy editor, is leaving the paper. We don't know the exact reasons for her exit yet; we'll provide more details as we get them.

Zacchino's departure leaves John Diaz, the editorial page editor, as the only exec editor underneath editor-in-chief, Phil Bronstein, on the masthead. Last month, managing editor Robert Rosenthal resigned before the expected 100 layoffs began at the financially struggling Hearst paper. At the time, Rosenthal sent out a memo saying he wasn't forced out: "The management structure will be flattened and my departure will clear the way for Phil to restructure the newsroom and allow him to have a more hands-on approach."

Rosey wasn't kidding. With Zacchino out, this is really Bronstein's baby now. (Should we should expect more above-the-fold stories on TV shows and why San Franciscans love dogs?) Maybe the paper should change its name. How 'bout The Bronsteinicle? Or maybe The Philistine. -- Will Harper

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
