David Cho Leaves The Awl for Grantland

According to The New York Observer, David Cho, Publisher of The Awl, is stepping down. He will be moving on to Grantland, but details are hazy as to what he’ll be doing for the website.

Cho said in an email, “The opportunity at Grantland and to work with Bill [Simmons] and to work with some of the people at ESPN is the only job that ever could have made me even consider leaving what Choire and Alex and myself have built at The Awl.”
