Greg Mitchell Leaves E&P to Blog for The Nation

Former Editor & Publisher Editor Greg Mitchell is setting up shop at The Nation‘s Web site.

There, Mitchell will be writing and editing TheNation.com’s new “Media Fix” blog, which will launch in April. For what it’s worth, he’s already started tweeting for his new employers. He’s also written a post for TheNation.com outlining the purpose of “Media Fix”:

Every day at the blog we’ll probe the latest media outrages, and uncover a few ourselves, while also providing links to important articles and blog posts at other sites (both mainstream and alt-), along with essential or amusing video. Since this is The Nation, we’ll pay special attention to media politics and media culture. If not 24/7, it will often be 16/6. Others in The Nation family, and perhaps even readers, will contribute. We’ll try to have some fun with it as we go along.

Mitchell was editor of Editor & Publisher from 2002 to 2009. During his tenure, the magazine won ten Jesse H. Neal Awards for business journalism. He has contributed to The Huffington Post, Talking Points Memo and The Daily Kos.
