Bill Marimow got a standing ovation when he left the Philadelphia Inquirer offices last night, according to Philadelphia magazine.
A winner of two Pulitzer prizes, Marimow was dismissed yesterday. He was hired in April 2012, his second stint with the paper.
"I hope that in the foreseeable future I'll be back to edit The Inquirer," Marimow told the paper in an article published this morning.
His firing comes after months of infighting with publisher Bob Hall, according to Philadelphia magazine, which said that someone anonymously delivered internal Inquirer documents to the magazine. It also reported that Hall had worked for months to build up a case to fire Marimow.
