march 14, 2007  02:46 pm
Felix Gillette is leaving the Voice to report on media for the salmon-colored broadsheet tabloid, according to an internal e-mail leaked to Gawker. Gillette, who also previously served as a staff writer for the Washington City Paper, joins a procession of young writers with alt-weekly experience who have been hired to do media reporting for the Observer. Other hires include Tom Scocca and Sridhar Pappu. CORRECTION: The New York Observer has not been a "salmon-colored broadsheet" since Feb. 14, when it switched to a tabloid format.
