The privately held publisher The New Republic, a 109-year-old title that offers leftist political analysis and reporting, has hired Michael Caruso as its chief executive officer and publisher. 

Caruso begins the role Tuesday.

The appointment fills a chief executive position left vacant since 2016, when owner Win McCormack purchased the title from Facebook cofounder Chris Hughes, leading to the departure of then-chief executive Guy Vidra. Caruso will take over publisher responsibilities from Kerrie Gillis.
