It's been a tumultuous year for former Rocky Mountain News society columnist Dahlia Weinstein whose comings and goings have been followed by Westword's Michael Roberts.
In May 2007, she left that paper to join the brand new glossy magazine Shine. But just a few months later, Weinstein left Shine (which later dimmed) and was hired on by another newcomer to market, albeit with an well-known name, Denver Magazine.
But on Tuesday, July 15, "Michael Ledwitz, founder and publisher of Denver Magazine, has announced that Dahlia Weinstein will no longer be acting as Editor-In-Chief of Denver Magazine. Mr. Ledwitz will assume the role of Editor-In-Chief and will be interviewing potential candidates for the Managing Editor position."
