Big changes for Jezebel's masthead

Sep 23, 2014

Not only does Jezebel have a new editor-in-chief, but there have been several new additions as well. Previous editor Jessica Coen has officially handed the publication's reins to Emma Carmichael (clockwise from left), while Julianne Escobedo Shepherd joins as culture editor, Jia Tolentino is named features writer, and Clover Hope is now a staff writer.

"It’s my last day as EIC of Jezebel! I’ll be sticking around as Editor-at-Large, but all future outrage should be directed to @emmacargo," Coen announced.

As an alum of both Gawker and Deadspin, Carmichael is perfectly suited for the Jezebel position and has already settled into the role of welcoming her new team members, recently tweeting, "very excited to announce that @jawnita, @jiatolentino & @clovito are joining the wonderful @Jezebel staff."

Escobedo Shepherd hails from The Fader, where she served as executive editor until 2010, while Tolentino was most recently a contributing writer for The Hairpin and Hope was previously a deputy editor at VIBE. Congratulations to all!
