Steve Perry is no longer editor of Politics in Minnesota, following changes instituted after its parent company’s recent bankruptcy proceedings.
Perry, a long-time Twin Cities journalist who previously had worked two stints as City Pages’ editor and was editor of the Minnesota Independent, was let go as part of a restructuring, said Steve Jahn, PIM’s vice-president and publisher. A reporter position was also dropped.
“We simplified the product line,” Jahn said.
Perry had been editor of PIM since fall of 2009.
Dolan Co., the owner of Politics in Minnesota and other publications and professional services, filed for bankruptcy protection in March but emerged less than three months later in June.
Dolan’s publications in the Twin Cities market also include Finance and Commerce, Legal Ledger and Minnesota Lawyer.
