Meet Tasting Table's new top editor

Tasting Table will soon welcome a new editor-in-chief: Kat Kinsman (or as you probably know her on Twitter, the saucily-named @kittenwithawhip). Kinsman joins from, where she has served as managing editor for Eatocracy.

"A little personal news: As of 11/10, I’m joining the team at @TastingTable as EIC! Here’s a little more about that," she tweeted, later adding, "I will miss the freaking marrow out of my @CNN family. Prepare for me to get mushy at all of you over the next few days. I love you all."

You'll recognize Kinsman from her frequent appearances on CNN programs Sanjay Gupta MD, Newsroom, CNN Weekend, and more. At the EPPY Award–winning Eatocracy, she has been honored in the past with a James Beard Broadcast Award nomination. 

"Big congrats to @kittenwithawhip on her new Tasting Table gig. Big career moves like this take courage. Mad respect," Eater's Ryan Sutton responded to the news.

Her CNN colleagues understandably seemed disappointed, but voiced nothing but praise for Kinsman's work.

"Our loss is @TastingTable 's gain. @kittenwithawhip is not only an incredible talent, she's also a beautiful soul," Lisa Respers France declared on Twitter.

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!
