Fusion appoints Madrigal EIC

Alex Madrigal is now editor-in-chief of Fusion. Madrigal previously served as Silicon Valley bureau chief and anchor there, after joining from The Atlantic.

"I'm excited to say: I'm the new editor-in-chief of @ThisIsFusion, working w/ @hilella and @AnnaHolmes to build this wonderful place," he tweets.

At Matter Magazine, editor-in-chief Mark Lotto reacts, "As a competitor, I'm pretty terrified of a Fusion led by @alexismadrigal, @hilella, and @AnnaHolmes. As a friend/spouse, I'm crazy excited."

Then this happened:

"In his first staff meeting as Fusion’s EIC, @alexismadrigal banned the word 'millennial.' Today is a good day," announces senior editor Kevin Roose.
