A few months ago, Racked national staff moved into Vox’s Midtown offices. The site now has 16 full-time staffers, triple the number in place at the time Vox acquired the property in 2013. And this week, Leslie Price was promoted to editor-in-chief while Izzy Grinspan was named executive editor.
The editors of Racked’s local city editions work out of their respective territories, while the back end for all Racked functionality is run out of Vox’s Washington D.C. offices.
“Our traffic has gone up seven-fold in the past year,” explains Price via telephone to FishbowlNY. The latest Google Analytics monthly uniques total for Racked is a little over five million.
