Ronald D. Martin, one of the chief architects of USA Today, has been named editor of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, five months after the stormy resignation of editor and former New York Times Washington bureau chief Bill Kovach prompted protest marches in the streets Atlanta. Arnold Rosenfeld, who has served as interim editor, will become editor-in-chief of Cox Newspapers, the parent company of the Atlanta papers. The announcement signals an apparent return in philosophy at the Atlanta papers, which had consciously imitated USA Today's use of color and short stories before hiring Kovach from the New York Times in 1986.
