Observer Hires New Digital Managing Editor

tylert.jpgThe New York Observer debuted a revamped Web site today, so it’s fitting that the paper also announced the appointment of a new editor to oversee its online content.

Tyler Thoreson, the former executive editor of Condé Nast‘s men.style.com, has been named managing editor of Observer digital, where he will oversee Observer.com and the Observer Media’s Group’s online venture VSL. It looks like new editor Kyle Pope, a former Condé Nast-er himself, has wasted no time installing a new staff at the top of the Observer‘s masthead, after appointing his former Portfolio colleague Christopher Stewart deputy editor in December.

Thoreson, who is starting at the Observer on February 15, first worked for the paper back in 1996 as a fact checker, the paper said today.

Newsday, Observer Name New Editors

Debby Krenek.jpgIt’s a Friday afternoon a few weeks before the end of the year, but that hasn’t stopped two New York-area papers from announcing moves at the tops of their mastheads.

The latest editor of The New York Observer, Kyle Pope, named Christopher Stewart the paper’s deputy editor, according to a memo obtained by Romenesko. The two formerly worked together at Portfolio magazine, where Pope was one of two top editors and Stewart was a contributing editor. Pope was named editor of Observer last month.

Also today, Long Island newspaper Newsday announced a changing of the guard atop its masthead, as managing editor and senior VP of digital media Debby Krenek (pictured) was picked to succeed editor-in-chief John Mancini, who resigned.

Cablevision-owned Newsday‘s former publisher Tim Knight, resigned in September, with Terry Jiminez, the publisher of amNY, which is also owned by Cablevision, stepping in to replace him.
