Deadspin EIC named Gawker exec editor
Gawker has moved up Deadspin’s editor-in-chief Tommy Craggs in a big way, naming him executive editor over all eight of their flagship titles. Evidently the recent reshuffle was triggered by a conversation about Gamergate, of all things.
Craggs hasn't tweeted anything about the big promotion--then again, he hasn't tweeted much of anything in several months. Perhaps that will change with the job? As Deadspin's Daniel Roberts notes, "sending @tcraggs22 congratulations by Twitter is like Doc sending Marty a Western Union in 1955. I mean, it may get there?"
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!
