It’s a brand new position at people.com. Occupying it, as of Monday March 30, is Sara Nathan.
From today’s memo by People editorial director Jess Cagle:
I’m very pleased to announce the arrival of Sara Nathan as people.com’s news director. Sara is a widely respected journalist and editor with 17 years of experience in media. Sara, who reports to Will Lee, comes from dailymail.com, where she was U.S. show business editor-at-large.
Born and educated in London, Sara relocated to New York in October 2012 as part of dailymail.com’s expansion into the U.S. market. Prior to joining the Daily Mail in 2009, Sara worked at The Sun, the UK’s biggest-selling daily newspaper, for 10 years, rising through the ranks to TV editor and running the successful “TV Biz” column.
In today’s lightning-fast world of 24/7 competition for celebrity scoops, mistakes are easier to come by. While at the Daily Mail, one of Nathan’s such moments famously involved George Clooney.
