It’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.
