Dodai Stewart Named Executive Editor of Fusion

A promotion.

Fusion has named Dodai Stewart executive editor. She most recently served as director of culture coverage.

Before joining Fusion, Stewart worked as deputy editor for Jezebel.

“I thought long and hard about bringing in someone from the outside, but when I looked at the talent that we have in house, I just couldn’t imagine that we’d find anyone better than the people we have here,” wrote Fusion editor Alexis Madrigal, in a note to staffers.

Stewart is succeeding Hillary Frey, who is leaving to join Matter Studios.
