Seeing as Foreign Policy Magazine lost its Editor-in-Chief Susan Glasser last week to Politico, the higher ups have to be feeling pleased that they have major announcements to share in a staff meeting today at 10 a.m.
This morning members of FP‘s staff are learning that the publication has hired a new editorial leadership team. In the coming weeks, the site will also get a facelift in the form of a “major redesign.” At the top of the leadership pack is Noah Shachtman of Wired‘s Danger Room. He’ll be Executive Editor of News.
Whether this is hype or not, the news comes across as energetic and positive in a morning release. Schactman will join FP’s Peter Scoblic and Ben Pauker in “key roles as the organization builds on the momentum gained through record-breaking readership numbers, an exploding digital presence, and nationally-recognized, award-winning coverage on the world’s leading global issues.”
Scoblic will will be Executive Editor, Analysis and Commentary, and responsible for Foreign Policy magazine and ForeignPolicy.com’s roster of columnists and essayists. Pauker has been promoted from Senior Editor to Managing Editor for the website and magazine. He’ll oversee contributors, foreign dispatches, and newsletters.
