Leadership changes at the Times

The Washington Times announced Monday that it has changed the primary leadership of its business and financial operations in order to better keep up with the challenges of a competitive media marketplace.

President and Publisher Thomas P. McDevitt, Chief Financial Officer Keith Cooperrider and Chairman Douglas D.M. Joo were relieved of their jobs Sunday.

Jonathan Slevin, who previously served as vice president of The Times, has been named acting president and publisher of the newspaper. An independent assessment and leadership team has been organized to address the practicalities of daily operations, and ultimately, the future sustainability of the news organization.

"There are no plans to shut the company down," Mr. Slevin told Times employees during a meeting Monday morning.
