Kyle Gustafson left his post as Washingtonian's online editorial director just before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. He's the third person to sit atop that part of the magazine's masthead in recent memory.

While he was editing Washingtonian.com, Gustafson, one of the area's best-known photographers, continued to shoot live concerts for the Washington Post, a situation he says was "absolutely not" a problem for Washingtonian.

"They're all wonderful people and I wish them well," he says. "It wasn't working out for either party."

He declined to elaborate further.

Gustafson took the Washingtonian gig in mid-August, replacing Sommer Mathis, who edited the site for about four months before leaving for Atlantic Cities. Mathis came in over Alyssa Rosenberg, who had served as the site's top editor and subsequently left for Think Progress.

Gustafson previously worked as a Web producer for Hanley Wood. I've called and emailed Washingtonian's editor, Garrett M. Graff, and will update when I hear back from him.
