The last of Deadspin editorial staffers have called it quits.
The move comes after a leaked memo showed that the site’s new owners, G/O Media, called for the site to “stick to sports.”
After that, the site’s interim editor in chief was axed.
Then came a mass of resignations from other staffers.
On Friday, Nov. 1, 2019, top writer Dave McKenna quit too.
All told, about 20 writers and editors have quit since the memo leaked, which is essentially everyone who worked on the site’s content.
In a sarcastic post, senior editor Diana Moskovitz site “appointed” McKenna editor in chief Friday since he was the “last editor left with access to our work systems.”
In the post, she pointed out that McKenna would only the “hold” the post for one day — since, according to the same post, he quit Friday too.
Moskovitz gave her two weeks notice Oct. 29.
As of Sautrday morning, the latest entry (at least that made it into the site’s RSS feed) was published Nov. 1 at 5:30 p.m. eastern time and was entitled “The Normal Person’s Guide To Training For A Marathon.”
