Meet Mediagazer’s New (Human) Editors
If the last thing you heard about Mediagazer’s staffing was its founding editor’s move to The Observer, you were probably wondering who was now running the show. Well, for over a month we’ve been quietly assembling a team spanning three time zones and two continents to keep the media news moving. Well, not entirely quietly, but this post marks the first introduction of the entire team. So meet Mediagazer’s new human editors:
Lyra McKee is a journalist from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has worked as a reporter and producer for various news operations since 2005, including stints at the BBC, Sky News and Channel 4. In 2006, she won the Sky News Young Journalist of the Year award for an investigation into suicide in North Belfast. A self-confessed media nerd, she is obsessed with the goings-on of the industry. She brings this eye for detail and her investigative skills to her role as Editor of Mediagazer.
Lyra edits Mediagazer mornings and early afternoons Monday through Thursday. She’s @LyraMcKee on Twitter.
Patricia Sauthoff is a journalist and sometimes academic who recently finished her second masters degree in an obscure and somewhat impractical subject. She has lived in Colorado, Ohio, New Mexico, and the United Kingdom. She now lives in Portland, Oregon with the rest of the young retirees.
Patricia edits at Mediagazer weekday afternoons and evenings. She’s @gitagovinda on Twitter.
David edits Mediagazer Fridays and weekends. He also edits Techmeme on weekends plus other random times. He’s @david_connell on Twitter.
Recruiting and orientating the team has been a lot of hard work (particularly for David, who accomplished most of the integration), but we’re really happy with the people we now have in place. So please keep reading us, following us, tipping us, and letting us know how we’re doing.
