Rumor: IMG is Selling The Daily, Editor Brandusa Niro Wants to Buy It
Here's something to shock you out of your Friday afternoon slump. We hear that IMG is selling New York Fashion Week newspaper The Daily, according to a source close to the situation. The likely buyer? Editor-in-Chief Brandusa Niro, who founded the publication in 2003. This development follows the news that Valentine Uhovski, Emily Gyben, and Emily Popp--all longtime reporters at the pub--have left. Guillaume Bruneau, who was most recently an art director at Elle, and Eddie Roche, a former producer with Alley Cat Group, have joined as art director and senior editor, respectively. In late October, The Daily struck a deal with AM NewYork--a free morning newspaper that's circulated throughout New York City--to distribute an insert, called The Daily Chic Report. In an email to Fashionista, an IMG spokesperson said: "We decline to comment on rumor and speculation."
