In a surprise announcement, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Bill Marimow was told this morning that he is no longer the editor-in-chief of The Philadelphia Inquirer, according to a report on philly.com.
The website quoted a memo issued this morning by publisher Bob Hall stating that "effective immediately, Bill Marimow is no longer employed by Interstate General Media, Inc. We wish Bill well in his future endeavors. Stan Wischnowski will become acting editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer. "
