Old publishers never die

Old publishers never die: The rexblog doesn’t do personnel announcements unless they are about friends who are “stepping down” (what the heck is that?) like Albie Del Favero, who, according to David Fox of Nashvillepost.com, is “stepping down.”


Albie Del Favero, who led a group that acquired the Nashville Scene shopper in 1989 and transformed it into a financially successful weekly newspaper, is resigning his post as publisher. His departure becomes effective in December, when his employment contract with parent Village Voice Media expires.

1989. No way. Let’s do lunch. You pay.
