Amy Tennery Named Managing Editor of Dan Abrams’ New Blog Mogulite

Dan Abrams has picked Amy Tennery to serve as the managing editor of his new site Mogulite, a blog about media moguls — a group of people seriously in need of more coverage — the New York Observer reports.

Tennery, formerly of The Real Deal, had concern about the gig at first, worried that “a site focused solely on the rich and powerful would be overly snarky or even petty.” Because media moguls are people, too!

However, her and Abrams agreed that the idea behind the site should be “to mine the inner workings of moguls’ lives while also trying to elevate the discourse.” Good thing. It is in serious need of some elevation. Also, we wonder if Tennery will write about Abrams himself?

So who is Tennery’s favorite mogul? the Observer had the wherewithal to ask (apart from Abrams, no doubt).

It’s Warren Buffet, because “he’s like a Mensa Teddy Bear.” No way! He’s our favorite too!
