Turnover plagues California paper

The general manager of billionaire Phil Anschutz's San Francisco City Star has left the 15-month-old paper. No replacement has been named for Humberto Najar, 38. Najar replaced founding publisher John Gollin, who stopped coming to work a month after the paper started. The City Star is an offshoot of Anschutz's San Francisco Examiner. We're told that most of the City Star's original staff has resigned including news editor Mike Krolak; editorial production editor Claudette Langley, advertorial editor Talia Salem and a number of sales reps.
