Foster Kamer Moves to The New York Observer

Foster Kamer, most recently with Esquire, has been named Senior Editor at The New York Observer. Kamer is a nice grab by Elizabieth Spiers, who clearly wants to breathe life into the paper with more biting work. Kamer says he is already thinking of potential targets:

I’m giddy at the prospect of finally working with Elizabeth Spiers and the rest of the Observer team as they continue filling an important gap in New York’s media climate: an unrelenting curiosity for how power in this city works, who the characters are that hold it, and most importantly, a distinctly fearless voice with which to document it. I look forward to my forthcoming AdWeek hit-piece.

We’re looking forward to it as well.

UPDATE:
Kamer explains why he left Esquire, and says that he’s going to be covering Wall Street at the Observer.
