Richard Johnson Gets New Gossip Column at NY Post

Richard Johnson, the veteran New York Post Page Six editor, is returning to New York to start a new gossip column. In a memo obtained by Daily Intelligencer, Jesse Angelo, the Post’s publisher and editor-in-chief, said Johnson’s column “will be a mix of gossip from both coasts, society news, business and politics in the legendary style of Neal Travis.”

Johnson left his spot at Page Six in 2010 to lead the now-shuttered The Daily’s gossip section. When The Daily shut down operations, Johnson stayed in Los Angeles and acted as a correspondent for Page Six.

Johnson’s return to New York won’t lead to other changes at the PostEmily Smith remains the Page Six editor and the column maintained by Cindy Adams is staying as well.
