Ian Mohr Named Page Six Deputy Editor

For the first time since longtime editor Richard Johnson left the column, Page Six is getting a male face.

The New York Post's gossip column will welcome Ian Mohr as its deputy editor.

Former Page Six Deputy Editor Paula Froelich tweeted the news Friday morning; the Huffington Post has confirmed the move.

Mohr is a veteran of the trade magazine circuit, having served as Variety's box office reporter and The Hollywood Reporter's New York bureau chief. He is a Brooklyn native and a graduate of the University of Denver.

Johnson left the column late last year to join News Corp's iPad-only The Daily, where he writes The Flash gossip column. Emily Smith now edits the column, which is home to reporters Stephanie Smith and Tara Palmeri as well.
