David Frum Joins The Atlantic

david frum GDavid Frum, a veteran political commentator and author of eight books, is joining The Atlantic as a senior editor. Frum has most recently been a contributor to CNN and The Daily Beast, but this marks a return to full-time journalism for him.

Frum has worked for the editorial pages of The Wall Street Journal and Forbes. He served as a special assistant and speech writer for President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2002, and was a senior foreign policy advisor for Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign.

“David is a gutsy, heterodox thinker and a lovely writer—the very definition of the sort of contributor who has distinguished The Atlantic all these years,” said The Atlantic’s editor-in-chief, James Bennet, in a statement. “I look forward to his bracing work appearing across all our platforms.”

Frum begins March 31.
