The New York Observer Hires Kat Stoeffel

Add a new name to the revolving door at The New York Observer: Kat Stoeffel is rising from intern to online staff writer at the paper. Read managing editor Aaron Gell’s memo to staff, via Runnin’ Scared, after the jump.

Subject: Welcome Kat!
To: Editorial

Hey all,

Please join me in congratulating Kat Stoeffel, formerly our crack intern (who can forget the Jimmy Wales stare contest?), on her new position as online staff writer. Prior to her arrival at the Observer, Kat interned for n+1 and Paper. She also did a semester at the Sorbonne. Ask her something in French!

Kat will be on the media beat. Let the usual hazing begin.

Best,
Aaron
