Editor Kevin Hoffman to leave City Pages

Posted by: Neal Justin under Behind the scenes, Minnesota History, People Updated: May 16, 2014 - 3:37 PM

Kevin Hoffman, City Pages' editor-in-chief since 2007, is leaving the alt-weekly. Hoffman confirmed the news Friday afternoon shortly before sharing the information with his staff.

Hoffman, who previously served as managing editor at the Cleveland Scene, said departing was his idea and that he gave his bosses at Voice Media Group his notice four weeks ago. Friday will be his last day.

Hoffman oversaw a news organization that lost a significant amount of its staff over the years. At the same time, he led Pages' transition into the digital world and oversaw coverage that won national awards.

But Hoffman said it's now time for a change. "It starts to feel like Groundhog Day after a while," he said.

Hoffman said he plans to stay in the Twin Cities, where his wife is a lawyer. He said he's primarily interviewing with companies that are at least somewhat journalism-related.
