HuffPost just underwent some major personnel changes at the top of its black and Latino sites, reports Richard Prince at the Maynard Institute. HuffPost BlackVoices editor Gene Demby has stepped down to become a political editor at HuffPost. Instead of hiring a new managing editor, HuffPost LatinoVoices editor Miguel Ferrer will now head both sites.
Demby had only been in charge of the site since last October.
Despite the turnover, as Prince notes, HuffPost BlackVoices’ 2,604,000 unique visitors per month is second only to BET.com among black-oriented sites.
