Six Months Later, The Dallas Observer Has A New Editor: Former Staffer Joe Pappalardo.
Exactly six months ago today, the Dallas Observer announced that it was looking for a new editor — y'know, what with then-editor Joe Tone announcing that he was stepping down from the gig to work on a book, and all.
Today, Central Track can confirm that the paper's found one: Joe Pappalardo, most recently a senior editor at Popular Mechanics, has been hired to fill the vacant spot.
Hey, another Joe!
Pappalardo, who worked as a staff writer at the Observer around the turn of the millennium, also penned the book Sunflowers: The Secret History.
We expect an announcement from Pappalardo (the non-zombie pictured above) and/or someone else at the Observer shortly.
