Murray Weiss Leaves New York Post To Pursue Online Reporting

After making his bones by blowing the lid off a planned mob hit on Rudy Giuliani and exposing Eliot Spitzer‘s sexual exploits,  investigative reporter Murray Weiss has said goodbye to the New York Post.  Brandweek’s Robert Kiara reported that Weiss has joined Manhattan-focused digital news site DNAinfo.com and already published his first story for his new employer.

DNAinfo’s managing editor Leela de Kretser did not understate the value of adding Weiss’s experience to the team:

“[We are] thrilled to have one of the city’s best crime writers doing what he does best. Murray deepens our bench of professional journalists and our reporting on neighborhood news that matters to New Yorkers.”

Weiss will leave some big shoes to fill at the Post, a newspaper that is known for their bold crime stories and NYPD Daily Blotter.
