Handling Comms During COVID-19? We've compiled our best resources.

The New York Daily News has named top editors and has added a new digital longform team, despite recent layoffs. Robert Moore has been named head of news, up from managing editor since 2011. Former senior editor Clemente Lisi has joined as deputy head of news. Zach Haberman is now head of content for outlet and was previously deputy head of content since December 2014. Haberman joined the publication in 2012 as a digital editor. Starting Oct. 15,  Shaun King, most recently a justice writer at Daily Kos, will be senior justice writer covering social injustice in law enforcement, race relations, police brutality and social inequality while based in Atlanta. 

For the new digital longform team, Daily News has hired documentary filmmaker and media consultant Joe Angio, who before working at Roseland Films & Media for the past nine years, served as editor in chief of Time Out New York from March 1998 to January 2006.

Angio’s deputy editor is Bruce Diamond, who was most recently an editor and reporter for boroughs news at NYDN. Rounding out the team will be senior writers’ Andy Martino and Eric Barrow. Both had been sports writers for the paper, with Martino writing Baseball Insider for the paper. Barrow served as the Sunday sports editor and as a fantasy baseball writer since June 2010. Follow NYDN on Twitter and Facebook for breaking news and coverage from New York City and beyond.
