GQ senior editor Mark Lotto has left his home of two years for the same role at Medium, the online publishing brainchild of Twitter co-founder Evan Williams. Lotto is a veteran journalist, who joined GQ in 2011 after having served as op-ed page staff editor with The New York Times.
"I'm really, really happy to be joining @katelaurielee, @ev, and the whole awesome crew at @Medium," Lotto said of the move on Twitter.
"Congrats @marklotto. A+ choice, @Medium," replied Gillian Reagan at Capital New York.
"I'm thrilled to welcome @marklotto to @medium as a Senior Editor," Medium director of content Kate Lee announced.
"Impressive that @medium and @katelaurielee scored @marklotto -- a man who, by all accounts, is a great editor," observed Kurt Soller at New York Magazine.
Impressive, indeed--and we look forward to what this hiring will bring to Medium's fledgling future.
