The Washington City Paper’s managing editor Jonathan Fischer is headed to Slate as a senior editor. Starting out, Fischer will cover business and technology, eventually transitioning to editing Slate political coverage.

Slate editor-in-chief Julia Turner told FishbowlDC of the hire, “We’re incredibly excited about Jon joining our team. He has great experience at City Paper, a wide range of interests and a Slatey sensibility. We can’t wait to see what he does here.”

He’ll be based in DC.
