Variety’s Tom Lowry Off to The Daily

The pickup of Andrew Wallenstein in March seemed to portend a stem in the bleeding of reporters leaving Variety and its paywall.  But HuffPo’s Michael Calderone is reporting yet another staffer has been poached away by a rival publication. This time it’s New York based senior editor Tom Lowry, who’s off to The Daily to become the new business editor.

Here’s the memo from Daily editor-in-chief Jesse Angelo:

Folks,

I’m happy to announce that Tom Lowry is joining The Daily as our Business Editor. 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. Please give him a warm welcome when he starts July 1.

Jesse

Lowry was with Variety for little more than a year.
