Bill Marimow out as Philadelphia Inquirer editor

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Bill Marimow is out as editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

A notice sent to staff Monday says Marimow is "no longer employed" by Interstate General Media Inc., a local group that brought Marimow back to the Inquirer last year.

Marimow tells The Associated Press he isn't commenting. He had previously served as editor from 2006 to 2010.

The announcement says Stan Wischnowski will serve as acting editor.

A group of powerful local business leaders bought the company in April 2012 for about $55 million, in the fifth sale in six years. The company also includes the Philadelphia Daily News and the philly.com website.

The owners include influential New Jersey Democrat George Norcross III and former New Jersey Nets owner Lewis Katz.
