Atlantic Media’s Business Site Runs Aground; New York Replaces Jessica Coen

Adam Pasick, the editor in charge of Atlantic Media’s business site launch, has abandoned ship to take Jessica Coen’s old job as online managing editor for New York, according to Jeff Bercovici.


David Bradley’s Atlantic Media has been planning to launch a business site since last October, but the project has been put on hold indefinitely.


Mr. Pasick was left in charge of the new business site after Slate founder Michael Kinsley, who was hired to work on the launch, left the project to write a column for the Atlantic Wire.

The business site is left without an editor as Mr. Bradley’s company works on the relaunch of the National Journal to compete with Politico.
