Chicago Reader Editor Konkol out after controversy over Pritzker cartoon

CHICAGO (WLS) — Chicago Reader editor Mark Konkol departed from the publication Saturday after ten days on the job.

Sun-Times Media CEO Edwin Eisendrath said in a statement released Saturday that Konkol came to the Reader “bringing great hope for a new direction and a new life to a storied brand.”

“A tumultuous ten days culminated in the publication of a Reader cover that we believe was not in line with either our vision for the Reader or that storied history,” Eisendrath wrote.
