Examiner's Editor Fired; 2nd to Go in 14 Months

January 12, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

The San Francisco Examiner fired its editor in chief Thursday, the latest in a series of management shake-ups since the Fang family took over the paper from the Hearst Corp.

David Burgin, 62, was the second editor to hold the paper's top spot in the 14 months since the Fangs took control of the afternoon daily, brought in a new staff and began morning publication.

Burgin will be replaced by Zoran Basich, 35, who has served as the paper's editorial page editor.

"I think Dave Burgin did a great job here at the Examiner and got the paper on its feet when it needed a strong hand," said Basich.
