Our colleague Glynnis MacNicol, editor of mediabistro’s FishbowlNY blog is jumping ship to join Dan Abrams in his new consulting venture, Abrams research. McNichol joins Rachel Sklar and ‘Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ producer Colby Hall as editors of Mediaite.com, the media news and aggregation blog site Abrams is launching as a “calling card“. Abrams and Sklar have been talking to a number of media writers about the venture.
If you haven’t been swimming in the New York media fishbowl lately, you may not know that BusinessWeek’s Jon Fine raised questions about Abrams’ approach to PR consulting, to which he shot back on Mediabistro’s daily podcast. Fine incidentally, is married to mediabistro founder Laurel Touby.
