Humberto Castelló, the executive editor of El Nuevo Herald in Miami, has resigned and managing editor Tony Espetia (pictured on the right), is retiring. The moves were first reported by Hispanic Market Weekly.
Manny García, the Miami Herald‘s senior editor for news, has been named El Nuevo Herald’s new executive editor. Manny has been at the Herald since 1990. He has been a primary writer and reporter on two Pulitzer Prize winning projects for the paper.
A Herald article names Aminda Marqués Gonzalez as Manny’s replacement. It also points out the changes come as McClatchy, the paper’s parent company announced 19% cuts in its workforce.
Humberto and Tony stressed their departures are voluntary. However, Humberto told his staff he resigned because he was unwilling to make the mandated cuts “whether they are justified or not.”
