Guardian Names Janine Gibson as U.S. Editor

The Guardian has named Janine Gibson, currently editor of The Guardian‘s website, as the American editor to oversee its New York-based digital operation that will launch later this year, The Cutline reports.

Stuart Millar, The Guardian‘s online news editor, will join Gibson in New York as her deputy.

“Janine Gibson has been at the heart of our web operations and is the ideal person to lead our new team in the U.S,” said Alan Rusbridger, the paper’s editor-in-chief, in a statement.

Details about the new entity are still scarce. We only know that the new entity “will be significantly larger than anything we’ve done in the states before,” according to Rusbridger. More details will surely follow.
