Grantland Picks Up The Awl’s Publisher

Bill Simmons‘ sports and pop culture start up Grantland isn’t done scouring the media world for talent to poach. The New York Observer reports that The Awl’s publisher, David Cho, is stepping down to join Simmons and team as the new director of business development.

The Observer got a hold of Cho’s mass email to friends: “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.”

Cho will be moving to LA for his new gig.
