Zach Baron Leaves The Village Voice for The Daily

The Daily has been having a bit of a difficult run lately. It began charging Monday amidst rumors that it only had 5000 subscribers, and has weathered several deflections lately, including as recently as yesterday, when Lauren Bans left to be an associate editor at GQ.

So it’s due for some good news!

The Cutline reports that The Daily has poached  Zach Baron from The Village Voice, where he works as a writer and editor. Baron will be joining The Daily’s features desk, where he will report to culture editor and New Yorker pop music critic Sasha Frere-Jones.

Cue joke about Baron helping The Daily find the richest dog in South Dakota or whatever.

“I wish him well,” said Tony Ortega, editor-in-chief of The Voice. We do, too!
