Daily Beast Launches Entertainment & Fashion Section Sexy Beast

sexy beast.jpgIt’s only fitting that Tina Brown‘s online publication The Daily Beast would launch its new fashion and entertainment section, Sexy Beast, on the first day of Fashion Week in New York.

The new section collects all of the Web site’s fashionable content, including new articles about designer Yigal Azrouël who was rumored to have had stolen away Billy Joel‘s young wife Katie Lee Joel and a gallery of hunky photos from heartthrobs like Tom Cruise and Matt Damon in their younger days.

And since tonight is Fashion Night Out tonight in New York, you’d be wise to check out Sexy Beast’s guide to the 10 craziest events happening tonight.

If you want to learn more about Sexy Beast and The Daily Beast’s upcoming projects, former Mediabistro.com editorial director Rebecca Fox — who was named The Daily Beast’s director of editorial development and operations earlier this summer — will be on the Morning Media Menu tomorrow morning.

Update: Daily Beast executive editor Edward Felsenthal tells FishbowlNY, “We’re launching Sexy Beast because our readers have responded so strongly to our fashion and entertainment stories. And with the launch of an L.A. bureau, led by Gabe Doppelt, we plan on deepening our coverage in these areas.”

Earlier this summer, Doppelt, who has worked with Brown at Tatler and Talk, left W‘s West Coast bureau to lead the Daily Beast’s new bureau in Los Angeles.

Newsweek Feeds The Beast

DailyBeast821.jpgA week after beefing up staff on the West Coast, The Daily Beast adds to its New York team. The site poached Newsweek deputy editor Tom Watson to serve in the same capacity on the Beast staff. Watson, an eight-year vet of the newsweekly, joked to WWD, “I hear the future of journalism might be moving in this direction.” Watson and Daily Beast founder Tina Brown go way back to the Talk days, as do recent recruits Gerald Posner and Gabe Doppelt.

Daily Beast Continues To Build West Coast Staff

Our colleagues at FishbowlLA have a story today about Tina Brown‘s latest hire for The Daily Beast.

According to Dylan Stableford Brown has snagged Los Angeles Times television editor Kate Aurthur to serve as West Coast editor.

Aurthur will report to the Daily Beast’s West Coast Bureau Chief Gabe Doppelt, who Brown poached from W back in June. Brown also recently lured away our own editorial director Rebecca Fox. She’s joining the online publication later this month as director of editorial development and operations. Although Fox will be based in New York, she’s just one example of Brown’s recent quest to stock her staff — on the West Coast and here in New York — with talented journalists and editors with impressive resumes.

The Wrap is reporting Kate Aurthur is leaving the LA Times for Tina Brown‘s The Daily Beast.

Dylan Stableford writes:

Aurthur confirmed the news in an e-mail to TheWrap:

“I have no idea when any official announcement is going out, but yes, I’m leaving the L.A. Times to go to the Beast.”

Aurthur, who says she is “excited” about the move, will become the Beast’s West Coast editor. She’ll be working with Gabe Doppelt, the Beast’s West Coast bureau chief.

So, we guess this Internet thing isn’t just a fad then.

FishbowlLA: W‘s Gabe Doppelt is moving to Tina Brown‘s The Daily Beast‘s LA bureau. This is the first time Doppelt and Brown have worked together — Doppelt started her career as Brown’s assistant at Tatler and also worked as an editor at large at Brown’s Talk magazine.

New York Magazine: We were blown away by the in-depth reporting that went into Matthew Cole‘s account of New York Times reporter David Rohde‘s kidnapping and the measures taken to try to get him out.

wowOwow: “60 Minutes” contributor Lesley Stahl interviewed CNN‘s Christiane Amanpour about foreign reporting and the crisis in Iran. “If I’m kidnapped I want you, personally, to lead the charge and make sure people know about it,” Amanpour told Stahl, in response to the David Rohde kidnapping.

From WWD Media:

MOVING ON: Tina Brown and Gabe Doppelt are reuniting for the third time, as Doppelt leaves as W’s West Coast bureau chief to join The Daily Beast, founded by Brown at InterActiveCorp. Doppelt, a former editor in chief of Mademoiselle and VH1 producer, began her career as Brown’s assistant at Tatler and was an editor at large at Brown’s short-lived Talk. (She’s also godmother to Brown’s daughter.) “I don’t think Tina’s ever thought I was off the payroll,” said Doppelt. “It came as a surprise to her that I wasn’t still working for her.”

Doppelt will be hiring reporters for the new bureau and will be working out of IAC’s Los Angeles building.

W chairman and editorial director Patrick McCarthy (who also oversees sister title WWD) said in an e-mail to staff that “Gabe, who has been with W for eight years, has done an incredible job and we will miss her tremendously. A successor will be announced in due course.”

Woot.
