Emmis mum on sudden exit of Indianapolis Monthly editor

David Zivan is out as editor of Indianapolis Monthly after six years in the post.

Indianapolis-based Emmis Communications Corp., publisher of the magazine, confirmed Wednesday that Zivan is no longer with the company and said it is searching for his replacement.

Zivan, whose last day was Monday, told IBJ in an email that he "had a great six years with the Monthly—and the staff is terrific." But he and Emmis spokeswoman Kate Snedeker would not discuss the circumstances surrounding his departure.

He became editor of Indianapolis Monthly in October 2005, after serving seven years as a senior editor at Chicago magazine.

Indianapolis Monthly, which has paid circulation of about 41,000, is among six regional or city magazines published by Emmis. The others are Texas Monthly, Los Angeles, Atlanta,  Cincinnati and Orange Coast.
