Simon Doonan Leaves The New York Observer After 10 Years for Slate

>> Simon Doonan Leaves the New York Observer After 10 Years for Slate –Right before New York Fashion Week, the New York Observer has just lost Simon Doonan, a columnist for the paper for the past 10 years. Slate's chairman, Jacob Weisberg, has reportedly been courting Doonan for some time now, and he leaves on the heels of Alexandra Jacobs, the longest-serving editor at the New York Observer, who took a position as an editor at The New York Times's Styles section. Observer editor-in-chief Kyle Pope wrote in an email: "Simon has been a star of the Observer for 10 years, and he’ll be missed. But, as he said, it’s time for someone new to step up. We’re searching now for who that someone will be.” [Business Insider]
