Steve Fainaru, who has been with The Bay Citizen since its 2010 launch, announced Friday night that he’s resigning as interim editor-in-chief to work on a book project with his brother, sportswriter Mark Fainaru-Wada.

Fainaru’s exit comes at a time of extreme transition for the nonprofit news organization. In September, the company’s founding editor-in-chief, Jonathan Weber, left the organization for Reuters. The following month, its CEO, Lisa Frazier, announced she would stepping down as chief executive.
