Observed: Zeke Turner Heads To WWD


By Alex Alvarez Comment

Add Zeke Turner to the list of names leaving the New York Observer in recent months. Turner, who covered media and, more recently, real estate for the paper, is heading to WWD, which also scooped up former Observer scribe Jon Koblin as well as Peter Kaplan — also formerly of the Observer — as editorial director of the Fairchild Fashion Group.

As The Awl points out for anyone keeping track of such things, this move makes “for a solid 10 out of 10 departures in the last four or so months alone all being women and gay men (as far as we can tell from outside).”
