Gabriel Snyder To Run The Atlantic Wire

Gabriel Snyder has been put in charge of The Atlantic Wire, the magazine’s digital component and news aggregation site.  In his new role, Snyder will compile real time news stories and help lay out the day’s headlines for the site. While The Atlantic and theatlantic.com are located in DC, Snyder will work out of Manhattan’s Madison Avenue and is expected to add 15 new hires to work under him.  Snyder explained the benefit of a New York home base.

For the same reason that a lot of places based in New York want a DC bureau, because they want people steeped in the culture of DC, I think this will bring [to DC] people who are more attuned to what’s going on in New York.

Snyder, a former contributor to Variety and W, has resided in New York since 2008 when he served as editor-in-chief of Gawker – a stint that lasted until his untimely dismissal last February.  He then found work at Newsweek where he ran the magazine’s website, however — due to the magazine’s sale to Sidney Harman in August — he only lasted five months in that role.
