Buzzfeed Poaches Two from Gawker

A tipster notified us (and notified us, and notified us) that Buzzfeed has expanded its editorial staff by adding two from the Gawker Media empire. Whitney Jefferson, a writer at Jezebel, and Matt Cherette, a writer at Gawker, will both be joining Buzzfeed in January as Senior Editors.

Reached via email, Jefferson said she was “over-the-moon about joining the Buzzfeed team,” and Cherette added that “it’ll be exciting.” Both couldn’t elaborate on the exact details of their new positions.

We’ve also reached out to Buzzfeed about an alleged redesign happening in January, and we’ll update you when we hear back.
