Tom Lowry Leaves Variety for The Daily

For all of the naysaysers who say The Daily won’t make it: you’ll be saying that for a while, because it’s not giving up anytime soon. Michael Calderone at Huffington Post reports that Rupert Murdoch‘s tablet publication has nabbed Tom Lowry from Variety to be its new Business Editor. Daily editor-in-chief Jesse Angelo said in a staff memo: “Tom comes to us from Variety, where he was a senior editor, and BusinessWeek before that. He is an excellent journalist and a great guy and we’re thrilled to have him aboard.”

Calderone added, “The Daily, which hopes to build a national audience, has always had its sights set beyond the Manhattan media fishbowl.” We’re trying not to take that reference personally.
