According to Yahoo News’ The Cutline, a few of the hires include author and journalist Elizabeth Eaves, the new opinion editor; Avi Zenilman, who was a reporter for Politico and has written for other outlets, will report on business; The New Yorker‘s Sasha Frere-Jones will be the culture editor; and former New York Post Page Six columnist Richard Johnson will be running things out of Los Angeles.
Paid Content has criticized the choices, writing “this is going to be a new brand that will get a ton of attention for being native to the iPad” rather than coming from the print world. While the editorial roster is impressive, “there’s little in their backgrounds that suggests they can create something ahead of the curve.”
