Former Portfolio Editor To Lead Observer

observer.jpgFormer Portfolio top editor Kyle Pope has been picked to take over the reins of The New York Observer from interim editor Tom McGeveran, owner Jared Kushner announced yesterday.

The announcement comes just a week after McGeveran announced that he would be stepping down from his post at the paper, which he as held since longtime editor Peter Kaplan left the pub in May. Pope will be starting at The Observer on Monday, and will work side-by-side with McGeveren for a few weeks to ensure a smooth transition. The December 9 issue will be Pope’s first as editor.

Pope most recently worked as one of two top editors at Condé Nast‘s business glossy until it folded earlier this year. He started his career at The Wall Street Journal, where he won a Pulitzer Prize as part of the paper’s team covering September 11. Pope has also worked as a freelance contributor for The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times.
