John Solomon Leaves Newsweek/The Daily Beast

By Betsy Rothstein Comment

John Solomon has left his supposed dream job at Newsweek/The Daily Beast after just one year to focus on Packard Media Group.

Adweek first reported the news.

Before Newsweek/Beast, Solomon was at the Center for Public Integrity running iWatch. And before that, he was Executive Editor at the TWT. Adweek reports that his book on the DSK affair, DSK: Anatomy of a Scandal (St. Martin’s Press), will publish in May and is to be excerpted in Newsweek. As some may recall, Solomon landed an exclusive interview with the DSK maid. The headline: The Maid’s Tale.
