Mark Silverman Leaving Tennessean

Posted By on Tue, Aug 30, 2011 at 12:52 PM

Nashville Post's J.R. Lind reports that Tennessean executive editor Mark Silverman (no relation to me) is leaving:
Mark Silverman, The Tennessean's executive editor, announced in a late morning staff meeting he will be leaving 1100 Broadway for a spot in Gannett's corporate office.

Silverman, who joined The Tennessean in 2006, will move to the parent company's Community Publishing Division's corporate news staff in mid-September. It will be Silverman's third stint in the corporate office. He has also served as editor in Detroit, Louisville and Rockford, Ill.

Silverman has been at the helm of The Tennessean in an era marked by unprecedented job cuts at the daily, with more than 150 layoffs since late 2008.

During his tenure, The Tennessean was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for breaking news reporting for its flood coverage and Silverman was named the nation's Editor of the Year in 2010 by the National Press Foundation.
