Daily News Loses Gossip Columnist

Marianne Garvey is moving on.

On the heels of the New York Daily News cutting 20 staffers, Marianne Garvey, who edited the Daily News’ ‘Confidential’ gossip section, is leaving the paper.

Garvey joined the Daily News in 2012. She previously worked for VH1 and InTouch.

Garvey told the New York Post she wanted to pursue other opportunities. “I just decided it was time to go,” said Garvey. “For my own reasons, I wanted to look for something long term — not in the newspaper business — and I felt I couldn’t do that while I was still working there.”
