Gawker Picks Up a West Coast Contributing Editor

LA-based freelancer Cord Jefferson just landed himself a pretty sweet gig. He’s just joined Gawker’s staff as the site’s newest, and as far as we can recall, first west coast contributing editor. Jefferson has been freelancing for Gawker for the past few months. He’ll join the staff full-time on August 6.

Jefferson was the senior editor of GOOD prior to the staff purge at that mag several months ago.
