Atlantic.com’s Biz Editor Out Before Site Launches

atlqqqantic.jpgBecause the world of business news isn’t saturated enough, Atlantic Media announced a new business site in October to be launched sometime this spring (after an initial push-back from this winter’s original date).

Originally, Michael Kinsley of Slate had been…er…slated to lead the site, but, according to Jeff Bercovici at DailyFinance.com, the editor/developer is out.

Said Kinsley of the mutual decision to leave the position:

“I’m not obsessed with business…I sort of looked into my soul, and Justin Smith [president of Atlantic Media] looked into my soul, and we both sort of decided that I really didn’t want to do that.”

No one has been announced to fill Kinsley’s position yet, another sign that the release date of the new site may be pushed back even further.

Portfolio.com Media Blogger Moving On

Jeff-Bercovici.jpgEarlier this month, we noticed that Portfolio.com media blogger Jeff Bercovici had posted an item on NYMag.com‘s Daily Intel shortly after the Condé Nast business magazine folded.

Since then, we’ve spotted Bercovici’s byline on a handful of Daily Intel posts, including one yesterday discussing a meeting between Rolling Stone owner Jann Wenner and Condé exec David Carey. So we wondered, is Bercovici seeking a permanent spot at NYmag.com?

No, Bercovici told FishbowlNY, “I don’t have any formal arrangement to write for Daily Intel on a regular basis — I just happened to have a string of ideas that worked for them.”

Nor is Bercovici returning to his old stomping grounds, Portfolio.com, which will soon be resurrected by American City Business Journals. However, he has signed on for a new job that he’s keeping under wraps until next month. Rest assured, we will be staying on top of his next move.

Update: It looks like Bercovici will be covering the media industry for DailyFinance.com starting June 1.
