Observer Editor Moving On

Peter Kaplan is leaving the New York Observer:

Peter W. Kaplan, the editor of The New York Observer, announced his resignation on Wednesday and said he would be leaving the weekly in June. For the past 15 years Mr. Kaplan has used tart headlines and talented young writers to create a kind of contemporary municipal history of New York high and sometimes low. The newspaper let those in the know know what else they should know about.

The Times account is a real love letter, calling the editor “a modern version of the fedora-wearing newsman, a man who saw his paper as a weekly libretto rendered in glamour and noir.” I thought that was Matt Drudge!
