Observer Drops Scene Publisher Julie Dannenberg

Julie Dannenberg, the publisher of the monthly Observer Media Group magazine Scene, has been laid off. Dannenberg had come to the magazine from Avenue, where she held the same role.

Peter Davis, editor-in-chief of Scene, told WWD that no successor has been named yet. He also didn’t miss the chance to tout Scene as “a local Vanity Fair.”

New York Observer Shutters Velvet Roper

Velvet Roper, the nightlife site from The New York Observer, is being shut down.

Aaron Gell, editor-in-chief of the Observer, sort of confirmed that by telling the Post, “Scene needs an online home, and it became obvious we are just competing with ourselves. Scene is the stronger brand.”

Laura Griffin, editor of Velvet Roper, is now listed as a consultant.
