Dealbreaker’s Bess Levin joining Vanity Fair
Bess Levin, the editor of Wall Street gossip site Dealbreaker.com, is leaving the site after 10 years to write for Vanity Fair’s business news site The Hive.
Her last day at Dealbreaker will be Nov. 1. She will start at Vanity Fair on Nov. 9.
Levin writes, “This is the best job I’ve ever had, which probably explains why I’ve spent a third of my life here. When a large part of your professional responsibilities are to write fan fiction about Steve Cohen and Guy Fieri – and then have an actor bring those tales to life in the basement of dimly-lit TriBeCa bar— you don’t have much to complain about.
“There aren’t too many other jobs that could make me think about leaving DB,* but the opportunity to keep writing about Wall Street in my own semi-disturbed way at Vanity Fair’s The Hive turned out to be one of them. I’ll be starting over there on November 9 and hope you’ll come visit.”
