BussFeed News Names New Editor

From a New York Times story by Katie Robertson headlined “BuzzFeed News names a new editor in chief”:

BuzzFeed News announced on Thursday that Karolina Waclawiak, its executive editor of culture, would become the next top editor.

In a memo to staff members, Samantha Henig, the interim editor in chief, said that Ms. Waclawiak was chosen after a search involving internal and external candidates.

“I personally was inspired by Karolina’s desire not just to lean into BuzzFeed News’s dominance as a trusted news source for millennial and Gen Z readers, but also to have fun doing it,” Ms. Henig wrote in the email, which was viewed by The New York Times.
