Joe Pompeo Leaves The New York Observer For Business Insider

Joe Pompeo is leaving his post as managing editor of the New York Observer for the Business Insider, where he’ll help staff their media news blog, “The Wire.” There, he’ll join another former Observer writer, Gillian Reagan.

Henry Blodget, Business Insider‘s editor in chief and CEO (and one half of the great Twit Fit of 2010), was uncharacteristically succinct when asked about the new hire by the Village Voice: “World domination! Thrilled to have Joe.”
