Mike Seely, editor in chief of Seattle Weekly, is leaving the post at the end of the month.
Seely, a Seattle native and UW grad, says in a blog post on the Weekly’s blogs website, that he’s off to Ballard “to edit a worldwide subscriber-based commercial radio wire service” for a local outfit called ReelWorld.
The Weekly was recently purchased by Sound Publishing and Seely takes pains to say he’s not being bumped out because of the new ownership.
“This decision is entirely my own, one which I’ve been contemplating for many months as I seek to put my family — which has welcomed two daughters in the past 17 months — on more stable ground,” he writes.
Seely, who had been the Weekly’s managing editor for several years, was named editor in chief in Dec. 2010.
