(AP) 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 him back to the Inquirer last year.
Marimow had previously served as editor from 2006 to 2010. He tells The Associated Press he isn't commenting.
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 Philly.com.
The owners include influential New Jersey Democrat George Norcross III and former New Jersey Nets owner Lewis Katz.
