HuffPo’s Peter Goodman Gets Back to Writing

Peter Goodman, who was hired away from The New York Times last year, is going to do more reporting and writing from now on. Goodman, The Huffington Post’s Executive Business Editor, announced the change in a memo this morning. Goodman said that the change had been planned since the beginning.

“I was brought in here to have an overall imprint on the business, economic and tech coverage, but not to manage the site in a granular way,” Goodman told Capital New York. “That’s something I’ve been doing, but now that we have the infrastructure in place, it’s a good time for me to hand off the day-to-day supervision to capable hands and go out and start writing and reporting more.”

Goodman will now be writing a weekly column, which will feature investigative pieces with a focus on middle class America.
