Joe Pompeo has the scoop on an important succession.
Liz Spayd (pictured), formerly at The Washington Post, is replacing Cyndi Stivers as editor-in-chief of the Columbia Journalism Review. Stivers left in the spring to become EIC of AOL.com. From Pompeo’s item:
“We’re very excited about Liz’s arrival and have high hopes that she will lead CJR into a new era of influence and digital adaptation,” Columbia Journalism School Dean Steve Coll, himself a Post veteran, wrote in a Thursday morning internal announcement obtained by Capital New York.
According to Pompeo’s previous reporting, Spayd beat out former Roling Stone executive editor Eric Bates. Read the rest of his item here.[Photo courtesy: @spaydl]
