Silvia Killingsworth Takes Over The Awl

The Awl:

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 just genuine enthusiasm (an emotion you may have noticed as being in short supply over the last, say, seven years here) about things make her the clear and obvious choice to head The Awl as it evolves into its next stage of life.

Great hire. Go Awl.

Update: And in more media industry news, Nick Bilton has left The New York Times to become a special correspondent for Vanity Fair. Another great hire.
