Wired promotes Honan, adds Hempel

Aug 22, 2014

Wired just promoted staff writer Mat Honan to senior staff writer and added Jessi Hempel as senior staff writer, too. Hempel joins from Fortune, where she was a senior writer.

"I've got big news! I'm joining WIRED," Hempel recently tweeted, sharing this thoughtful Medium post

Executive editor Jason Tanz chimed in, "thrilled to announce that @jessiwrites is joining the WIRED family."

... although Fortune colleague Andrew Nusca reacted by tweeting, "brb sobbing."

Not forgetting Honan, The Awl's Matt Buchanan joked, "btw, please congratulate @mat on becoming the oldest staff writer at wired."

Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
