Observed: Zeke Turner Heads To WWD

Add Zeke Turner to the list of names leaving the New York Observer in recent months. Turner, who covered media and, more recently, real estate for the paper, is heading to WWD, which also scooped up former Observer scribe Jon Koblin as well as Peter Kaplan — also formerly of the Observer — as editorial director of the Fairchild Fashion Group.
