Editor Elizabeth Spiers said about Douglas, “She has a great eye for a story and I know she’ll produce a smart, sophisticated culture section that I look forward to reading.”

Douglas also ran the U.S. editorial office of the London-based The Art Newspaper and has contributed to New York magazine online, The Economist’s quarterly Intelligent Life and The National, among others.

“I’m excited to bring my knowledge of the arts to a leading paper that covers all of the cultural disciplines that thrive in this city,” Douglas said.
