Kerry is the former editor-in-chief of Salon.com. During more than a decade at Salon, he worked as the site’s culture editor, Washington bureau chief, and founder of Open Salon, the pioneering blog network. Before joining Salon, he worked as an editor at Mother Jones magazine, The New York Times Magazine and the late Forbes ASAP. His first job was at the Owensboro (KY.) Messenger-Inquirer.
Kerry’s strong editing skills, the vast range of his experience, and his time spent building new products and luring new readers make him especially well-equipped for an initiative focused on the fast-growing mobile readership. Kerry brings to our mobile ambitions the perfect blend of innovation and journalistic chops, as well as a collaborative spirit.
Kerry will start July 7 and will report to Cory Haik.
