Newly installed Atlantic co-presidents Bob Cohn and James Bennett announced today that J.J. Gould will be the new editor for TheAtlantic.com. Cohn was formerly the digital editor, while Gould had been executive editor for the site.
Gould was previously an editor at the Journal of Democracy, and he has also written for The Washington Monthly, The American Prospect, The Moscow Times, The Chronicle Herald, and The European Journal of Political Theory.
The move comes amid much reshuffling over at Atlantic Media. The departure of Bruce Gottlieb led to a game of musical chairs at the top of the masthead earlier this month, and just yesterday we reported that CTO Tom Cochran had left to go to the State Department.
