Capital NY continues expansion

Capital New York is on a hiring binge, thanks to its expansion under new ownership. First and foremost, JoAnne Wasserman joins Capital as an editor. Most recently Wasserman was at the New York Daily News until layoffs hit that publication hard.

“Tabloid titan @Bkjowasserman has joined @capitalnewyork: Was awarded for mentorship in May,” noted Capital media reporter Joe Pompeo.

“Thanks for all the good wishes about my new job at Capital New York. Excited to be joining a great team!” Wasserman tweeted.

Another noteworthy hire is Alex Weprin, who joins Capital's media desk from Mediabistro where he was senior editor for the TV Newser blog.

"I will miss my colleagues at @Mediabistro and @TVNewser, and have had a great time these last 3.5 years," Weprin shared on Twitter.

And Pompeo was once again on the job: "Cat's out of the bag: @tvnewser's @alexweprin is coming over to @capitalnewyork to cover the TV-news beat."
