Scott Havens, in a memo.

Andrew Golis Joins The Atlantic as Entrepreneur in Residence

Andrew Golis is joining The Atlantic as something called an “entrepreneur in residence.” While entrepreneur in residence sounds like “Dude/Dudette who’ll get paid to not do much,” that doesn’t seem to be the case here.

According to a release, here are Golis’ duties:

Working closely with The Atlantic’s Editorial and Digital Strategy and Operations teams, Golis will support the media brand’s expanding video and paid-content initiatives. He will also work with the teams to help identify and launch new ventures and products across The Atlantic’s platforms.

Golis was most recently director of digital media and a senior editor for PBS’ Frontline. He had been with PBS since March 2011.

Golis has also held roles at Yahoo! News and Talking Points Memo.

After only six months as the publisher’s assistant at Talking Points Memo, former Neon Tommy editor-in-chief Callie Schweitzer just earned herself a nice promotion. She’s now the deputy publisher of TPM, taking over the former spot of Andrew Golis, who’s now at Frontline.

See kids, a career in journalism is still possible in the 21st century! Congrats!
