Kerry has been instrumental in the success of the project we know internally as Rainbow. He and Cory Haik have developed an editorial sensibility that mixes eclecticism with traditional hierarchies and created striking, image-driven story presentations – building apps that are drawing ever-expanding audiences on Kindle, Android and iOS devices.
An experienced editor and manager, Kerry came to The Post after helping to launch The Dodo – a start-up about creatures that are, happily, not extinct. That followed a decade at Salon.com, where he worked as Washington bureau chief, culture editor and then, finally, editor in chief. He has also been an editor at the New York Times Magazine, Mother Jones and the late Forbes ASAP. His first job was at the Owensboro (KY.) Messenger-Inquirer.
