NY Daily News biz editor leaving


Scott Wenger, the managing editor of money and investing at the New York Daily News, has resigned from the paper, reports Keith Kelly of the New York Post.

Kelly writes, “He is going to become one of a number of editorial directors at SourceMedia, the Investcorp-owned business magazine group that was sold by Thomson back in 2004. He’ll be overseeing three of the company’s titles — Financial Planning, On Wall Street and Bank Investment Consultant — as well as working on the conference business. He’d been at the paper for nearly 13 years.

“‘I wasn’t looking,’ he said. ‘I had a fun ride here, but this was a tremendous opportunity.’

“He’s not alone. Amy DiLuna, the deputy features editor who was in charge of much of the paper’s Fashion Week coverage, is jumping to become a senior editor on NBC’s Today show.com.”
