Just yesterday we reported that New York Observer‘s culture editor Christian Lorentzen was heading to the London Review of Books. And just like that, he’s been replaced.
The Observer announced today that Sarah Douglas, currently a staff writer at Art+Auction magazine and its affiliate website, will be the new culture editor at the Observer.
Editor Elizabeth Spiers said about Douglas, “She has a great eye for a story and I know she’ll produce a smart, sophisticated culture section that I look forward to reading.”
Douglas also ran the U.S. editorial office of the London-based The Art Newspaper and has contributed to New York magazine online, The Economist’s quarterly Intelligent Life and The National, among others.
“I’m excited to bring my knowledge of the arts to a leading paper that covers all of the cultural disciplines that thrive in this city,” Douglas said.
