Revolving Door Quickies: Alexa Cassanos To New Yorker, Jessica Pressler To New York

Two items from this year’s slew of Labor Day-ish personnel changes:

  • The New Yorker has a new public relations director, Alexa Cassanos. She comes from with the Condé Nast organization, where she was previously the director of PR for Bon Appetit.

  • New York just hired Jessica Pressler, a former writer for Philadelphia, to create web content. Pressler was responsible for that whole “Philadelphia as the sixth borough” meme of a few years ago thanks to an article she wrote for the New York Times.
