Kirsten Danis Leaving Daily News for Wall Street Journal

Kirsten Danis is leaving the New York Daily News, where she has been a deputy and managing editor for nine years. She is headed for The Wall Street Journal, she told The Observer this morning.

Danis will be a deputy editor on the Greater New York desk, under John Seeley.

Prior to the Daily News, Danis was a reporter and editor at the Post.

Although significant staff reductions were made at the NewsWashington, D.C. Bureau on Friday, Danis had nothing but kind words for the News.

“I love the Daily News. I think it’s a fantastic newspaper, full of incredibly talented people,” she said. :: @kstoeffel
