First Look Media snares Gawker's John Cook
Entrepreneur Pierre Omidyar and journalist Glenn Greenwald's pioneering independent news project First Look Media has just made another high-profile poach: this time it's John Cook, Gawker's top editor. His new role? Editor-in-chief of FLM's digital magazine “The Intercept." Very nice.
"Hey look I got a job," Cook announced, nonchalantly, on Twitter.
Cook teased back, "working on @dankois next."
In the wake of Cook's departure, Gawker deputy editor Max Read is expected to take on the EIC position.
