Roshan Roulette: Five Staffers Flee; Can Ex-Wonkette Cox Save Radar?

The New York Observer notes that five staffers have left Radar. Senior editor Tyler Gray, en route to Blender, just had his last day at the magazine, as did managing editor Leigh Ann Boutwell, who is joining her boyfriend on the West Coast. On the business side, the magazine's president, Fred Poust, fled Radar's East 45th Street offices on May 30, along with finance director Dwight Holovach and Web site general manager Michael Small, who came in with great fanfare from Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone. "Three or four people leaving is not a big deal," insisted Maer Roshan, founder and editor in chief of Radar. Mr. Roshan said there were "impressive" additional new hires, but he wouldn't be able to announce them until later this week. Two new reporters will be hired for Radar Online, and former Wonkette Ana Marie Cox, who gave up her staffing position at Time and went on contract there in April, has joined the roster of contributing editors.
