A.J. Daulerio tells Jason Whitlock he will be an editorial director at SpinMedia. Among his charges, he says: Spin, Vibe, Celebuzz, The Frisky.
Daulerio tells Whitlock Spin and Vibe are "publications most people have heard of, just in their current iteration it doesn't seem like they actually have a lot of readership online." Spin, where I used to work, dismissed Editor-in-Chief Caryn Ganz in May and named Jem Aswad as her replacement.
Daulerio, Gawker's former editor-in-chief, began consulting for BuzzMedia, the former name of SpinMedia, in March. He'll "drive the direction and voice of several of our properties," SpinMedia CEO Steve Hansen tells employees in an memo, saying Daulerio's title will be Editorial Director of Entertainment and Music.
