The Atlantic Wire has hired Richard Lawson as a Senior Writer. Lawson was previously with Gawker, where he started in 2007. At The Atlantic Wire, Lawson reunites with Gabriel Snyder, the Editor-in-Chief of the site.
Snyder had previously worked at Gawker, and is looking forward to teaming up with Lawson once again. “Richard is one of the finest writers I have worked with, and I am thrilled he is bringing his unique voice to The Atlantic Wire,” said Snyder.
Bob Cohn, Editorial Director of Atlantic Digital, said that The Atlantic Wire has been doing well, so expansion is in the future. “Under Gabriel’s leadership, the site has more than doubled its traffic in the last year, and with the addition of Richard to the team, we’re ready to expand our reach and impact,” said Cohn. “Look for more great hires in the coming months.”
