Ivan Rodriguez Fierro, the editor of El Diario de El Paso, has resigned his position at El Paso's Spanish-language daily. He released a statement Monday afternoon explaining his resignation:
Friends and colleagues, I’d like to announce that I will no longer be working for El Diario de El Paso. As some of you may know, I am the son of the President, Mr. Osvaldo Rodriguez Borunda. Mr. Borunda asked me to step down from my job as Editor in Chief this morning due to a divorce he is going through with my mother.
It is a family related issue. It was a pleasure working with all of you. Thank you for helping me grow in my career and as a journalist.
Thank you again and I hope you enjoyed working with me as much as I enjoyed working with you.
Best of luck,
