Azi Paybarah Reunites With The New York Observer

After leaving the magazine last May to contribute to WNYC’s Empire blog, political reporter Azi Paybarah is back at The New York Observer.  After only a few months away, Paybarah is thrilled to be back at his old stomping grounds.

I’m honored to be re-joining The New York Observer as they further inject their fast-paced, intelligent and irreverent voice into the most important conversations. The chance to work with editor Elizabeth Spiers was a key part of my decision. What she promises to do to this news organization is nothing short of remarkable.

Before his first run with The Observer, Paybarah served as a political reporter at New York Press and The New York Sun.  Paybarah recently was noted as one of Twitter’s top social influencers on NBC New York’s ‘The 20’.
