The Village Voice reports that John Koblin quit the New York Observer and is moving to Women’s Wear Daily. Former Observer editor Peter Kaplan, is editorial director for Fairchild Fashion Group, which includes WWD. Kaplan ran the Observer until last summer, just under two years after it was purchased by Jared Kushner.

Reportedly, Koblin told editor-in-chief Kyle Pope his decision this morning.

Koblin spent four years at the Observer covering the New York media. He’ll cover the same beat for WWD.
