After at least five people made for the exits from Radar in the last two months, Radar editor Maer Roshan told the Observer in early June that the magazine would make “impressive” new hires. He held good on his promise. Moe Tkacik, the caustic, speedy and popular writer at Jezebel, is joining radaronline.com as a senior writer, editor Alex Balk wrote Radar‘s Web site last night.
Her first day is on August 18. She’s also the latest alumnus of Gawker Media to join the magazine: in addition to Mr. Balk, Ana Marie Cox recently signed a contract to serve as Radar‘s Washington editor.
