Timothy Knight has resigned as publisher of the New York newspaper Newsday.

Knight told staff in a note Wednesday. Knight said Terry Jimenez was appointed acting publisher. Jimenez is publisher of amNewYork, a related paper distributed for free in New York City.

Newsday spokeswoman Deidra Parrish Williams thanked Knight for his service, saying he helped navigate the paper through one of its darkest chapters. He had been publisher for five years.
