Michael Arndt, a former BusinessWeek staffer, has been named the managing editor of Crain’s Chicago Business. He replaces Brandon Copple, who left earlier this summer.

Phil Rosenthal of the Chicago Tribune writes, “Arndt most recently was Chicago-based editor for innovation and design coverage at Bloomberg Businessweek, a role he assumed with BusinessWeek before that magazine’s acquisition by Bloomberg last year. A senior correspondent in the Chicago bureau, he also served as editor-in-chief of BW Chicago, BusinessWeek’s experiment with a local monthly supplement, which ended after seven months in June 2008.

“Previously, Arndt was an editor in the Chicago Tribune’s business department and spent five years covering economic issues in the Tribune’s Washington D.C. bureau.

“Copple, who had been Crain’s Chicago Business since 2005, left to join Groupon.com, the fast-growing social networking site that has been offering users daily discounts to businesses in their area since November 2008.”
