HuffPo poaches from MoJo

Mar 31, 2015

The Huffington Post will soon welcome Nick Baumann as a senior enterprise editor. Baumann is currently a senior editor at Mother Jones, which has been his place of work for nearly a decade.

"Anyway I am desperately sad to be leaving @MotherJones, which is chock-full of awesome, extremely talented people," Baumann begins, concluding, "But I'm so thrilled to get a chance to work with the great people at @HuffingtonPost!" He later adds, "OH in the office: 'Everybody stop being nice to Nick. Enough of it!'"

"Nick? Who's Nick?" jokes MoJo colleague Molly Redden.

At HuffPo, politics and immigration reporter Elise Foley responds to the news, "Super excited that professional beer pong player slash editor @NickBaumann is joining HuffPost!"

With those kinds of credentials, we'd be excited, too.

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!
