The Evan­ge­list ed­i­tor to leave

Albany Times Union - - AROUND THE REGION - By Rick kar­lin

The ed­i­tor of the Cap­i­tal Re­gion’s Ro­man Catholic dioce­san news­pa­per, The Evan­ge­list, is step­ping down af­ter a 25-year ca­reer there.

Kate Blain started as an in­tern, worked as a re­porter, man­ag­ing ed­i­tor, and then ed­i­tor for the past seven years for the weekly, 34,000-cir­cu­la­tion pa­per.

She put in her res­ig­na­tion this week, said Mary De Tur­ris Poust, dioce­san spokes­woman and as­so­ciate pub­lisher of the news­pa­per.

“Bishop (Ed) Schar­fen­berger re­mains com­mit­ted to our dioce­san pub­li­ca­tion and will con­tinue to work with our staff and Board mem­bers to find ways to make The Evan­ge­list even more com­pelling and rel­e­vant, not only for our print sub­scribers but for the vast dig­i­tal au­di­ence that re­mains largely un­tapped,” Poust said in a state­ment.

Blain of­fered to re­main for a tran­si­tion pe­riod, Poust said, ex­pected to be about a month.
