Two promotions at The Atlantic; two new tech reporters at Gizmodo
The Atlantic’s editor in chief, Jeffrey Goldberg, recently announced two promotions: Matt Thompson, who has been deputy editor of TheAtlantic.com since 2015, has been promoted to executive editor, responsible for overseeing an expanded, cross-platform portfolio. And staff writer Adrienne LaFrance is the new editor of TheAtlantic.com, managing the day-to-day editorial operations of the site and overseeing its reporting team across ten news desks. She joined The Atlantic as a staff writer and editor in 2014 and previously worked for outlets including Honolulu Civil Beat, Nieman Lab, WBUR-Boston and Digital First Media.
Gizmodo is welcoming two new senior reporters covering consumer tech: Sam Rutherford, previously senior product reviews analyst at Tom’s Guide and Laptop Mag, and Melanie Ehrenkranz, who comes from Mic where she has been a tech reporter. Before that, she was the editorial researcher and then managing editor at PSFK.
