Zeke Miller, formerly of BuzzFeed, has landed — at TIME Magazine, as first reported by the indefatigable Mike Allen this morning in Politico Playbook.
“I’m honored to be joining the amazing team at TIME to cover politics,” Miller told FishbowlDC. “I’ve been reading the magazine since I was a kid, so it’s especially exciting to join.”
In recent weeks, Miller has been conducting a relatively quiet job search for reasons that are still unclear. Was BuzzFeed no longer a good fit? Time to move on? Whatever it was, he burned no bridges as BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith bid him a fond farewell. He checked in with Politico about a job prospect — apparently Smith’s old stomping grounds weren’t a good fit either.
Now happily employed with TIME, Miller is fleeing to the Cayman Islands in the western Caribbean Sea for three days for a little R & R. He was allegedly taking R & R in the past week, but couldn’t stop himself from tweeting, resorting to “vacation tweet” prefaces. “I’m touring the offshore banks we heard so much about last year,” he explained. “But actually just trying to get some R&R.”
Enjoy. And congratulations.
