Tony Auth leaves Philadelphia Inquirer

Tony Auth

Pulitzer-winning editorial cartoonist Tony Auth is leaving the Philadelphia Inquirer after 40 years. “Tony Auth’s name might be more synonymous with the Inquirer than perhaps any journalist we’ve had,” says executive editor Stan Wischnowski. “You don’t replace somebody like that, you don’t replace a legend.” Philly’s CBS affiliate reports Auth is headed to “a non-profit website associated with public radio,” which sounds like WHYY’s (Former Inquirer op-ed editor Chris Satullo is the executive director of news there.) I’ve asked Auth to tell Romenesko readers more about his move.
