Time Names Dan Hirschhorn Director of News

A promotion.

Dan Hirschhorn, November 8, 2010 in Arlington, VA. John Shinkle/PoliticoTime has promoted Dan Hirschhorn from senior editor for news to director of news. Hirschhorn joined Time in 2013.

Hirschhorn previously worked for Politico and the now-shuttered The Daily. His work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post and The New York Daily News.

“Since joining us a little over two years ago, Dan has been instrumental in building and guiding our 24/7 news operation,” wrote Time managing editor Nancy Gibbs, in a memo to staffers. “From the growing frequency of our scoops to the 62 stories we posted in the first 24 hours of last month’s Paris attacks, our readers have benefited from Dan’s tireless work ethic, and that of continuous news editor Dan Stewart and their team.”
