Yahoo News Gets New Deputy Editor In Daniel Klaidman
[ Business]

Yahoo has been rebuilding its Yahoo News team in recent months with some high profile talent acquisitions.

On Monday, the company announced yet another new team member with the appointment of Daniel Klaidman to the Deputy Editor position. He comes from The Daily Beast, where he was the national political correspondent.

In this new role, Klaidman will oversee day-to-day editorial operations, work with Yahoo News reporters to further develop and grow original content, and help guide the site’s long term strategy.

“Dan is an exceptional choice for Deputy Editor of Yahoo News,” said Megan Liberman, Editor in Chief of Yahoo News. “He is known for his talent in guiding writers and reporters, conceiving high-impact original stories, reacting quickly and creatively to breaking news and managing a large and active newsroom. He will make a huge contribution to the Yahoo News team.”

Before joining The Daily Beast, Klaidman was managing editor at Newsweek.

Liberman herself only took over as Editor in Chief at Yahoo in September. Since then, Yahoo has added David Pogue to lead its tech coverage, Matt Bai as a national political columnist and Katie Couric as its new global anchor.
