Refinery29 hires AJAM journalist

Refinery29 has anointed Kaelyn Forde as executive editor of news, demonstrating what some are calling a move toward "hard news and politics." Forde joins from Al Jazeera America, where she served as a reporter and producer.

“We want to show our readers—both through our coverage of the 2016 campaign and beyond—that we live up to our motto that ‘our party is women,'" Forde writes.

"We are thrilled that @kaelynforde has joined the @Refinery29 team!" the Refinery account shares. We're certainly looking forward to what Forde will do there.
