Cathy Harding, editor in chief of C-VILLE Weekly, has announced her resignation after nine years at Charlottesville’s news and arts weekly newspaper. Harding will become the Development Director for the Columbia Journalism Review, a leading journal and website of media criticism and reporting that is published through the Columbia School of Journalism in New York City. Harding will remain with C-VILLE through the month of March.
“I am incredibly proud of the work I’ve done at C-VILLE. Its team is rich in talent and its commitment to publishing great journalism, design and advertising is unparalleled—it’s been a dream job,” says Harding, whose association with C-VILLE began in 1999 as Deputy Editor. “I am excited to return to New York and rechannel my many years of experience as a hands-on journalist and editor towards the growth and financial development of a prestigious magazine like CJR.”
C-VILLE Publisher Frank Dubec said C-VILLE’s search for the next editor would begin immediately. “While we’ve got big shoes to fill, we are confident we will find the right person to carry on Cathy’s outstanding work.”
Cathy Harding, C-VILLE’s third editor in its 21-year history, is headed to Columbia University.
