Franklin Foer Returns to New Republic

Franklin Foer, the Editor-in-Chief of The New Republic from 2006 to 2010, is returning to the magazine for another stint in the same role. Foer has been working on side projects since leaving the title, and told The New York Times that he had no intention of coming back. “But to me, it feels like a new project,” Foer explained. “It doesn’t feel like I’m going back to my old job.”

For The New Republic’s relatively new owner, Chris Hughes, hiring Foer is a big step toward rebuilding The New Republic. Other changes that are planned include adding pages to the print version, redesigning the website and setting up offices here in the city.

Hughes, who worked for Facebook and left with a fortune estimated at $700 million, knows kickstarting the magazine is going to be rough, but he sounds optimistic. “Our goal is to recruit a lineup of all-star. We want to hire great people, and quality costs money,” he said. Good thing he’s got plenty of it.
