Gizmodo Editor Replaced

Geoff Manaugh [pictured] is out as editor of Gawker’s tech site Gizmodo after only nine months. According to a memo obtained by Jim Romenesko, Manaugh and Gawker weren’t a good match:

Geoff is a real talent and one of the smartest thinkers in our editorial group, but unfortunately did not integrate well with the structure both within his team and the company as a whole.

Manaugh seemed to agree, tweeting “Fun while it lasted, but time to get back to writing. The good news is I never have to use Kinja again.”

Prior to joining Gawker, Manaugh was a senior editor for Dwell and a contributing editor to Wired UK. He is also the founder of Bldg Blog.

Brian Barrett will succeed Manaugh as Gizmodo’s editor-in-chief.
