New York Post media writer Tim Arango will leave the newspaper for a writing job at Fortune magazine, according to a short item in Women’s Wear Daily.Stephanie Smith wrote, Fortune “managing editor Eric Pooley poached two staffers from The New York Times and the New York Post this week, proving that Portfolio’s Joanne Lipman is not the only magazine editor scouring newspapers for talent. Times information graphics editor Sarah Slobin will join Fortune on Oct. 24 as senior editor and Post media reporter Tim Arango will join Oct. 16 as a writer. Arango, whom Pooley said “is really great at penetrating big media organizations,” worked at TheStreet.com and Budapest Business Journal (really!) before joining the Post in 2002.
Arango joined the New York tabloid in September 2002 after reporting for the financial news site TheStreet.com. He is a native of Essex Junction, Vt., and earned his undergraduate degree from Saint Michael’s College and his graduate degree from Brown University.
