New Portfolio.com editor named
Dan Colarusso, the former business editor of the New York Post, has been named the new editor of Conde Nast Portfolio‘s web site, according to Irin Carmon of Women’s Wear Daily.
Carmon wrote, “Colarusso will be subject to a somewhat unusual reporting structure, at least within CondÃ© Nast â€” he answers both to editor in chief Lipman and group president and publishing publisher David Carey. ‘Joanne’s in charge of the quote unquote journalism, I’m in charge of getting broad distribution for the content,’ Carey told WWD. And to those who wonder about possible conflicts of interest, Carey said, ‘If there’s a piece or a blog post that may affect an important client, I don’t get a vote on it.’
“Ari Brandt will remain general manager of the site, overseeing its business.
“Carey compared the structure with that of Wired, which was placed under his purview last week, and which has a Web site editor who works both with Wired editor in chief Chris Anderson and CondÃ©Net president Sarah Chubb.”
