TheAtlantic.com has announced that Ta-Nehisi Coates, 32, will be joining the website’s blogging masthead. Coates has previously held positions as Time and the Village Voice. Earlier this year he penned and piece for The Atlantic titled “‘This Is How We Lost to the White Man’” about Bill Cosby’s Black Conservatism, as well, he published his childhood memoir The Beautiful Struggle.

TheAtlantic.com has managed to establish a strong online presence over the past year or so, beginning with Andrew Sullivan who moved there after only a year with Time. The line-up now includes Ross Douthat, Megan McArdle, Jeffery Goldberg, Clive Crook, James Fallows, and campaign must-read Marc Ambinder. Coates ostensibly fills the slot left vacant by Matt Yglesias who departed the site this week for the Center for American Progress.
