Naomi Zeichner Named Editor-in-Chief of The Fader

Six months after losing Matthew Schnipper to The Verge, The Fader has its new editor-in-chief. Naomi Zeichner, who previously worked with The Fader as an associate editor and senior editor, is coming back to take the lead. Zeichner most recently served as BuzzFeed’s music editor.

“Naomi is an incredible talent. Her creativity, taste and insider knowledge of the industry defines what The Fader stands for,” said Andy Cohn, The Fader’s president and publisher, said in a statement. “She’s re-joining an immensely talented group of editors, writers, designers and photographers, and we couldn’t be happier to have her back as we head into an exciting time for The Fader, with some major announcements to come.”

“I enjoyed and learned a lot from my time at BuzzFeed, but I’m returning to The Fader because I’m as passionate about being a part of music culture as I am about being a part of media,” added Zeichner.
