Well, cross one name off of the list of potential replacements for Tina Gaudoin at WSJ and Gerry Marzorati at The New York Times Magazine: Peter Kaplan, former Observer editor and current No. 2 at Condé Nast Traveler, has been tapped to head Advance Publications’ Fairchild Fashion Group. FFG CEO Gina Sanders announced today that he’ll serve as editorial director of the group that includes WWD, wwd.com, Footwear News, Menswear, Fairchild Summits, and Fairchild Books. He’s replacing outgoing editorial director Patrick McCarthy. “Peter is a distinguished journalist who has a true passion for newspapers and new media. Given the rapid evolution of business and new technologies, his experience will be invaluable as we position the Fairchild properties for the future,” Sanders said in a statement.
Mini Mike Bloomberg is playing poker with his foolhardy and unsuspecting Democrat rivals. He says that if he loses (he really means when!) in the primaries, he will spend money helping whoever the Democrat nominee is. By doing this, he figures, they won’t hit him as hard….
….during his hopeless “presidential” campaign. They will remain silent! The fact is, when Mini losses, he will be spending very little of his money on these “clowns” because he will consider himself to be the biggest clown of them all - and he will be right!
