Some moves for you to start your day: Newsweek/The Daily Beast has named Rob Gregory as its President, a new position at the company. Gregory was most recently with Plum TV, and was a veteran with Wenner Media before that. Gregory said of joining the team, “Newsweek and The Daily Beast deliver the ideal combination of immediacy and perspective, with a voice that is razor sharp, smart and fearless.”

New York magazine is also adding to its roster, bringing aboard Jonathan Chait. Chait was most recently a Senior Editor at The New Republic. Chait told Politico, “Obviously I love TNR and had no plans to leave, but the opportunity at New York was irresistible. Everybody who works there raves about it, and my friends in journalism have noticed for a while it’s become phenomenal.”
