Two Twitter Weeks Later, Andrew Wallenstein Has His Digital Editor

The New York hiring spree continues at Variety. Following the poaching of Brian Steinberg from Advertising Age, the trade has recruited Todd Spangler for the position of east coast-based digital editor.

From today’s announcement:

Spangler was most recently the technology editor for Multichannel News, a leading publication covering the cable industry. Prior to that, he was an editor and writer with several technology publications, including PC magazine, Interactive Week and Baseline.

During his tenure as a senior editor at Baseline, the magazine won three Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards in 2005-2006.

Spangler, who starts in April, is a graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. And anyone still wondering about the power of Twitter as a job candidate networking tool should consider the fact that just two weeks ago, Wallenstein tweeted this:
