MOVING ON: Tina Brown and Gabe Doppelt are reuniting for the third time, as Doppelt leaves as W’s West Coast bureau chief to join The Daily Beast, founded by Brown at InterActiveCorp. Doppelt, a former editor in chief of Mademoiselle and VH1 producer, began her career as Brown’s assistant at Tatler and was an editor at large at Brown’s short-lived Talk. (She’s also godmother to Brown’s daughter.) “I don’t think Tina’s ever thought I was off the payroll,” said Doppelt. “It came as a surprise to her that I wasn’t still working for her.”

Doppelt will be hiring reporters for the new bureau and will be working out of IAC’s Los Angeles building.

W chairman and editorial director Patrick McCarthy (who also oversees sister title WWD) said in an e-mail to staff that “Gabe, who has been with W for eight years, has done an incredible job and we will miss her tremendously. A successor will be announced in due course.” — Irin Carmon
