The Los Angeles Times shook up its top editorial staff Monday, terminating four of the paper’s top editors and naming a new publisher, Variety reports.

Among those to go is editor and publisher Davan Maharaj, the story reports.

“Also leaving the paper are Marc Duvoisin, the managing editor, Megan Garvey, the deputy editor for digital, and Matt Doig, the assistant managing editor of investigations,” Variety reports. “Tronc, the Times’ corporate parent, appointed veteran media executive Ross Levinsohn to replace Maharaj as publisher. Jim Kirk, the former publisher and editor-in-chief of the Chicago Sun-Times, was named interim editor.”

Maharaj had been the Times’ top editor since 2011, becoming publisher in 2016, the report notes. Those jobs will now be handled separately.
