Michael Kinsley Returns to The New Republic

Michael Kinsley is going back to his roots. According to The Huffington Post, Kinsley is returning to The New Republic, where he once worked for 20 years, as an editor-at-large. Kinsley was most recently with Bloomberg View, but he will leave that position in March.

“Mike Kinsley is a legend in the world of journalism, and we are fortunate to be welcoming him back home to The New Republic,” Chris Hughes, publisher and editor-in-chief of TNR, told HuffPost in a written statement. “His writerly wit and editorial voice left an indelible mark on the place when he edited the magazine 25 years ago. Much has changed since then, but Mike’s talents are timeless. He will be an incredibly important resource as we reinvent the magazine for a new age.”

At TNR, Kinsley will focus on interviews.
