Interim editor Geoff Dougherty abruptly parted company Wednesday with the Reader, which he joined last July as associate publisher. Dougherty succeeded editor Kiki Yablon, who resigned last December. Yablon, the former managing editor, had succeeded Alison True, who was fired as editor last June by publisher Alison Draper.

Draper says she intends to name a permanent replacement to Yablon within two weeks, hopefully sooner. She called Dougherty’s departure a “personnel matter” and had no comment on it. Neither had Dougherty.
