Philadelphia Weekly axes longtime editor Tim Whitaker

Adamma Ince has replaced Tim Whitaker as the editor of Philadelphia Weekly, the paper's parent company Review Publishing announced this evening. Whitaker, who led the newspaper since 1994 when it was still known as the Welcomat learned today that he was being replaced. He has not returned a message we left at his home this afternoon. Ince spent 12 years at the Village Voice which she left last year as the New York weekly's deputy managing editor. Anthony A. Clifton, the Englishman who owns Review, says he's "excited to welcome Adamma to our team and to have her build on the foundations and growth established by Tim Whitaker who has served as Editor of Philadelphia Weekly since 1994. Adamma gained valuable experience and a special passion for editorial from The Village Voice in New York which can only lift PW to new heights in the fast changing world of print and electronic media." Ince is not Review's first Village Voice import. Former Voice exec George Troyano was brought on as president and chief operating officer earlier this year.
