Newsweek's economics editor going to Yahoo Finance
Dan Gross, Newsweek’s economics editor, is leaving the general interest weekly to take a job with Yahoo Finance, reports Joe Pompeo of The Business Insider.
Pompeo writes, “Gross, a former New York Times columnist who also writes Slate’s twice-weekly ‘Moneybox’ column, has been with Newsweek since 2007. He is the latest departure in what media watchers are calling an exodus from Newsweek. The 76-year-old money-bleeding magazine is in the early stages of a major organizational transition as new owner Sidney Harman takes over.
“On the print side, Gross’ resignation follows those of national economics correspondent Michael Hirsh, who’s joining National Journal, and international editor Fareed Zakaria (first reported here on The Wire). Zakaria is leaving to write for Newsweek rival Time magazine and to expand his role at CNN.
“On the web side, Gross follows Newsweek Digital editor Mark Miller (a 25-year veteran who was also the editorial director of the magazine), Newsweek Digital executive editor Gabe Snyder, and Newsweek Digital general manager Geoff Reiss. More than a dozen others have left in recent months.”
