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’.
