Sharma hired as editor in chief of Vox
Swati Sharma, a managing editor of The Atlantic, will be the next editor in chief of Vox.com, reports Marc Tracy of The New York Times.
Tracy reports, “Ms. Sharma, 34, is scheduled to start in her new role next month. She will be taking over the site, which reaches nearly 30 million readers a month, from Lauren Williams, who is starting a nonprofit news outlet for Black communities called Capital B. Ms. Williams was also a senior vice president at Vox, and the company is still searching for someone to fill that position.
“Ms. Sharma, in her last two years at The Atlantic, helped lead the publication’s day-to-day digital coverage. The magazine and its website have added more than 400,000 paid subscribers since September 2019, when The Atlantic started charging readers for online access, thanks to its wide-ranging essays and its news coverage of the presidential race, social unrest and the coronavirus pandemic.”
