JoAnne Wasserman Joins Capital New York

JoAnne Wasserman, a veteran of The New York Daily News, is joining Capital New York. The New York Observer reports that Wasserman — who was laid off by the Daily News a few months ago — will serve as an editor for Capital.

Wasserman joined the Daily News in 1986 as a reporter covering City Hall. She most recently served as the paper’s Brooklyn bureau chief, a spot she held for eight years.

“We’re really looking forward to working with JoAnne,” Josh Benson, Capital’s co-editor, told the Observer, in an email. ”She’s a total pro and we feel lucky that she’s going to be a part of this thing.”

New York Daily News to Expand Local Coverage

Starting next Thursday, the 10th, the Daily News will include a new section titled “Uptown News,” which will cover Harlem, East Harlem, Inwood, and Washington Heights. JoAnne Wasserman is Uptown News’ Bureau Chief, and the section will be published every Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

In addition to Uptown News, the paper is expanding its local section overall, increasing outer borough coverage from one day of the week to every weekday and Sunday, starting next Monday, the 7th.

Kevin Convey, Editor-in-Chief of the Daily News, said the expansion is due to consumers wanting more:

The Daily News borough sections have been bringing New York’s communities to life every week and our readers want more of that personal connection, which is why we’re expanding our community coverage to bring them the latest news from their neighborhood every day and adding a new section for the residents of Manhattan’s uptown communities.

Imagine – a New York paper providing coverage of Harlem and the outer boroughs almost every single day. It’s almost like the Daily News is saying that those who live there matter, but we’re still awaiting official word on that.
