Stephen Buel has been dismissed as editor of the East Bay Express after 10 years by president and majority owner Jay Youngdahl over “creative differences,” according to the SF Weekly’s Joe Eskenazi.
Buel told Eskenazi: “One of my business partners and I had a series of disagreements and he owns more of the paper than I. So he thought it was best we part ways … This has been building for quite some time. But it came to a head a couple of weeks ago at which time I took some vacation. I was formally dismissed yesterday.”
Buel said he retains “a mighty 13%” of the paper.
