Some News About The Hairpin

by The Hairpin

We’re thrilled to announce that Silvia Killingsworth will be joining us here in April. Silvia is currently the Managing Editor of the New Yorker, where she has spent the last seven years managing the workflow of the magazine. (You may also know her from the web’s greatest food vertical, De Gustibus.) Silvia’s breadth of experience and wealth of ideas and genuine enthusiasm about things make her the clear and obvious choice to head The Hairpin as it evolves into its next stage of life. In fact, we’re so impressed by her vision for the site that we have also tasked her to take the reins at The Awl. It’s an enormous undertaking, but we would not have assigned it to any one person unless we were completely convinced that she was eager and able to do it. We hope you’re as excited as we are to watch this new phase unfold, and we ask you to join us in welcoming Silvia aboard.
