FP’s Managing Editor Flew the Coop

Indeed, lots of changes at Foreign Policy Magazine as of late. Another one we just learned of is Managing Editor Blake Hounshell, who announced Friday that he was leaving. This comes on the heels of Susan Glasser‘s departure as Editor-in-Chief, as well as the losses of Josh Rogin to The Daily Beast and Kevin Baron to Atlantic‘s Defense One. Word on the street is Hounshell’s resignation involved Glasser’s leaving and subsequent move to Politico. We’re told it was his choice to leave.

As we announced earlier today, Foreign Policy held a meeting this morning to announce a bunch of new hires and promotions, including Wired‘s Noah Shachtman as Executive Editor of News.

Hounshell’s Twitter bio no longer includes any mention of Foreign Policy. “I decide to leave FP after six and a half wonderful years working with amazing colleagues and contributors,” he told FishbowlDC. “Very excited for my new projects. Stay tuned.”
