Santa Barbara-based Pacific Standard just announced that Nicholas Jackson, Outside magazine’s former digital director, has taken on the same role at PSmag.com. Jackson was most recently an associate editor at The Atlantic.
While they were at it, Pacific Standard also poached Outside‘s assistant online editor Ryan O’Hanlon, who will serve as the magazine’s new associate editor.
The new hires seem to indicate an Atlantic-like commitment to ratcheting up the mag’s Web content. Which makes sense, since editor Maria Streshinsky came to PS from The Atlantic–where she was credited with bringing the mag back to profitability by helping to institute a Web-centric approach.
