From my CDT Post

Li Erliang, Editor-in-Chief of China Youth Daily, a newspaper owned by China Youth League, was sacked, Hong Kong newspaper Wen Hui Po reported. Li was replaced by Chen Xiaochuan, editor of Freezing Point, a weekly additional edition of the newspaper.

Li’s removal wasn’t elaborated by China Youth Daily, and the reason behind this is also unknown.

Chen Xiaochuan was appointed as the editor of Freezing Point after its former editor Li Datong was fired. Li’s dismissal was widely publicized.

The newspaper’s Party chief, Wang Hongqiu, was also removed, Wen Hui Po said.
