Editor of Huffington Post's New York Site Quits Role Three Weeks After Launch; David Weiner To Take Over
The Huffington Post launched its New York section on June 22. Now we hear that, only three weeks in, the site's editor, Dan Collins, is leaving his job. Dan Collins, a noted author (you should read Grand Illusion: The Untold Story of Rudy Giuliani and 9/11!) and also the husband of New York Times op-ed columnist Gail Collins, is remaining as a New York Editor-At-Large. We hear Katharine Zaleski will be the interim editor. Do you know more? You're absolutely welcome to email us in confidence. UPDATE: As a matter of fact, David Weiner is taking over as the New York site editor. He has a Twitter! And yes. Dan Collins will be hanging around and writing features and special projects and things. Also we are told that apparently it was "always the idea" that Dan would get things started and then phase out.
