Chris Suellentrop has been named deputy editor of Yahoo’s network of news blogs. He tells Joe Pompeo:
The Internet’s always been the most interesting thing in the world to me during my career. This isn’t to say that the Times doesn’t have an incredibly sophisticated website, but there’s something fun about the idea of going back and being a pioneer again and sort of trying to figure this stuff out. …Online readers have a huge appetite for long-form journalism. There’s no reason Yahoo News can’t swim in that pool.
Suellentrop was the editor of last week’s Jose Antonio Vargas “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant.”. He also assigned and edited Mark Leibovich’s award-winning profile of Politico’s Mike Allen. || Suellentrop tweets: “I will remain a contributing writer to The New York Times Magazine.”
