The Daily’s Hunter Walker Jumps to New York Observer

Looks like a mediabistro.com reunion of sorts will soon be in order at the offices of the New York Observer.

The paper’s editor-in-chief Elizabeth Spiers, who at one time was editor of our blogs, has hired subsequent FishbowlNY contributor Hunter Walker away from The Daily. Walker, currently based in LA and working closely with former New York Post gossip king Richard Johnson, will relocate to the east coast in October. Per the announcement:

“I’m excited to bring Hunter back to New York to cover politics for NYO,” Ms. Spiers said. “He’s a fantastically versatile reporter and I know he’ll do great things.”

To get an idea of what Walker will be leaving behind in La-la-land, check out this recent Business Insider piece. We’re pretty sure the 2010 Columbia journalism grad’s new gig will cut down on the number of “Glow in the Dark” parties attended with a bottle of Jack Daniels in hand. Then again, maybe not.
