It’s back: Looks like the New York Post wants to run Page Six: The Magazine as a weekly Sunday supplement. The last time the paper did a magazine version of Page Six, it was a bit of a crash and burn. Anchored by an article about a thirteen-year-old Angelina Jolie, the magazine also featured pieces on fake names celebrities use to check into hotels, Dita Von Teese and Heidi Klum as well. Most importantly, that was more than a year ago and the Post hasn’t tried the idea since then.
That is a long time in newspaper years, especially for the Post, as the whole Jared Paul Stern scandal proves. Now the big question is whether editor Col Allan will use an established Post staffer to run the supplement, or opt for outside talent.
Stern, by the way, is available.
