Atlantic Media’s new Pentagon-focused pub, Defense One, is making some internal moves. Patrick Tucker was hired earlier this week as technology editor, and today Stephanie Gaskell was promoted to deputy editor.
Tucker comes to Defense One after a nine-year stint with the The Futurist, a bimonthly magazine published by the World Future Society. Tucker most recently served as deputy editor at the magazine, which explores the technological, scientific, environmental, social and policy trends shaping our collective future.
Gaskell has been with Defense One since its inception in July 2013 as senior reporter and associate editor, and has quickly made herself indispensable. In a memo to staff, executive editor Kevin Baron was effusive in praising her.
“The move signifies Stephanie’s solid and critical role to Defense One‘s editorial content and direction since our founding,” he said. “She is the heart and soul of Defense One and our success would not have been possible without her.”
The pub also announced that they will be hiring a news editor and several reporters in the near future.
