Huffington struck back on Monday by poaching yet another Times journalist, the third in six months to leave the Gray Lady for the glories of the Internet after Tim O'Brien and Peter Goodman jumped ship to HuffPo. WWD learned that T: The New York Times Style Magazine's travel editor Maura Egan will become the Web site's deputy entertainment and culture editor. "It makes it easier to move, jumping into the pool after my colleagues have already done it," Egan said. "It's really almost heartbreaking to leave, but this was an opportunity that I couldn't refuse."
