Naomi Zeichner Named Editor-in-Chief of The Fader

Six months after losing Matthew Schnipper to The Verge, The Fader has its new editor-in-chief. Naomi Zeichner, who previously worked with The Fader as an associate editor and senior editor, is coming back to take the lead. Zeichner most recently served as BuzzFeed’s music editor.

“Naomi is an incredible talent. Her creativity, taste and insider knowledge of the industry defines what The Fader stands for,” said Andy Cohn, The Fader’s president and publisher, said in a statement. “She’s re-joining an immensely talented group of editors, writers, designers and photographers, and we couldn’t be happier to have her back as we head into an exciting time for The Fader, with some major announcements to come.”

“I enjoyed and learned a lot from my time at BuzzFeed, but I’m returning to The Fader because I’m as passionate about being a part of music culture as I am about being a part of media,” added Zeichner.

Bring the LA Music Scene to The FADER

The FADER prides itself on being first on the scene when it comes to up-and-coming artists and music trends. Among the musicians who got their first mag covers at The FADER include Kanye West, MIA, The Strokes, Drake, Bon Iver, Frank Ocean and more. The magazine also holds the distinction of being the first publication to be distributed as a PDF through iTunes.

“We’re always interested in hearing more ideas from outside of our immediate field of vision.

Andy Cohn, Fader Media Executive Vice President and Group Publisher, said of the changes:

It was a natural progression for Matthew to take over as editor-in-chief of The Fader. He is the heart and soul of the publication and has really transformed it editorially over the years that he has been a part of it. With his new position, and the hiring of Amber and Naomi in addition to our entire edit staff, we are in a really great flow.
