GQ Editor Moves Over to Medium

MediumFrontNice mini-scoop for newly arrived Capital New York media reporter Johana Bhuiyan. She was the first to report that GQ editor Mark Lotto has moved over, effective Wednesday, to San Francisco-based start-up medium.com:

It’s a big move for Lotto, a print veteran who also has worked as an op-ed page staff editor at the New York Times before joining GQ in 2011. Now he will be working alongside new media mainstays like Twitter co-founder and Medium founder Evan Williams, and director of content Kate Lee

Lotto’s title at Medium is senior editor, a spokesperson for the site confirmed.

We’re not sure how many more GQ pieces Lotto has banked, but the last to publish while he was still packing up there looks to be recipe item “The Great Franco-Italian Pasta Experiment.” Meanwhile, among the top-read articles last month at the free-form, collaborative place Lotto has joined was “Dear Guy Who Just Made My Burrito.”

A little further down the Top 100 for September is “Why I Don’t Write for Medium.” Go figure.
