Publisher replaced at amNewYork

Christopher Barnes is out as publisher of Tribune Co.'s amNewYork after 11 months on the job, and the company isn't commenting on his departure. A spokeswoman quoted in Newsday, a sister paper, said it was unclear whether Barnes would remain with the company. Replacing him is Terry Jimenez, Newsday's chief financial officer. Jimenez will keep the CFO position while assmuing the mantle of amNewYork. Before joining Newsday in 2005, Jimenez held positions at the Chicago Tribune and the McDonald's Corp. The changes were made Monday. Barnes replaced Russel Pergament, who has since returned to his old stomping grounds in Boston to form BostonNOW. (Photo from journalism.co.uk.)
