Buzzfeed evolves with promotion
Continuing its expansion into new journalism territory, Buzzfeed has promoted senior political reporter Chris Geidner to legal editor. "So @chrisgeidner was an illegal editor?" quipped New York Magazine's Stefan Becket. "@chrisgeidner, on his way to world domination," Buzzfeed EIC Ben Smith himself tweeted of the announcement. "It's been a decade since the summer I started blogging. It's so incredible I now have the opportunity I have to cover the law for BuzzFeed," Geidner tweeted, adding, "I'm looking forward to exploring new subject areas & finding the best ways to cover the law in our new media landscape. So. Damn. Exciting."
Elaborating on his new role, Geidner also shared a tumblr post, explaining, "In terms of what this new job means, I wrote a little bit about how I plan to approach things here." Guardian's Stuart Millar reacted, "Congrats @chrisgeidner on posh and very well deserved new title."
Don’t forget - if you change jobs or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten at kirsten [at] muckrack [dot] com so we can reflect your new title. Thanks!
