BuzzFeed UK expands with culture editor

Jan 16, 2015

BuzzFeed's UK editorial team has added Bim Adewunmi as its inaugural UK culture editor. Currently wrapping up as the Guardian activing women's editor, in her next role Adewunmi also will oversee British contributions to BuzzFeed Ideas, the outlet's first-person essays section.

"Congrats Bim, or more accurately - Buzzfeed," reacts Guardian columnist Ellie Mae O'Hagan.

"A huge welcome to Buzzfeed UK, @bimadew ... and could the last person to leave Fleet Street please turn out the lights," advises Tom Chivers, himself a recent BuzzFeed addition.

After apparently battling a Challah-nibbling rodent, Adewunmi tweets, "*stumbles in, mouse-bloodlust in eyes* Thank you all so much for your warm congratulations re my new job!"

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!
