Larry Platt has announced that he’ll be leaving the Daily News on June 8th. We hear Platt is stepping aside to focus on a book he’s writing about Souderton native and former Phillie Jamie Moyer. Platt had been the editor of the Daily News since early 2011. The former editor of Philadelphia magazine has previously authored three books, including Only the Strong Survive: The Odyssey of Allen Iverson.
