Philadelphia anchor Larry Kane signs off for good at KYW-TV, leaving the station before former WPVI-TV anchor Marc Howard arrives to take Kane's 11 p.m. chair this month (see Bylines, October). Kane, an on-air presence in Philly for more than 30 years, will do analysis and other pieces for KYW-AM; finish his book "Ticket to Ride," about his time touring with the Beatles; and do consulting.... David Ignatius departs the International Herald Tribune, where he has been executive editor, to return to the Washington Post as an associate editor. Ignatius, who will initially be based in Paris, will go back to writing two Post op-ed columns weekly. He had been on loan from the paper, which is selling its 50 percent share of the Herald Tribune to the New York Times, owner of the other 50 percent. The Times has named a former Herald Tribune managing editor, Walter Wells, to lead the newsroom after the sale is complete.... Tonnie L. Katz resigns as editor of the Orange County Register after 14 years at the paper, citing family reasons. Ken Brusic, who was promoted from executive editor to senior vice president for content and strategy last year, succeeds Katz.... Steven D. Hammel, former WJLA-TV vice president, news, who kept mum about where he was going when he announced he was leaving the Washington, D.C., station (see Bylines, December), is the new station manager at KPHO-TV in Phoenix.
