Longtime weekly newspaper publisher Jerry Fuchs resigned from the Peninsula Independent newspapers on Wednesday (June 30) to join the San Mateo County Times, where he’ll be a columnist and associate publisher, according to the Times. Fuchs said he chose to leave the Independent because he disagreed with decisions made by the newly formed Anschutz Newspaper Group since Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz bought the San Francisco Examiner and Independent newspaper chain in February. Fuchs’ political column, “Nobody Asked Me, But…,” will continue at the Times, where it will run Tuesday through Saturday on the editorial page, starting July 13.
