Katharine Viner Tapped To Lead The Guardian

Katharine VinerIt took them 194 years, but The Guardian will finally have its first female editor-in-chief: Katharine Viner, the current deputy editor and editor-in-chief of Guardian US. Before her selection, an internal poll of Guardian staffers showed “overwhelming support” for Viner’s appointment. Staff had no shortage of women to choose from, too: according to The Nation, of the four major internal candidates for the job, three were women. Viner will take over from editor Alan Rusbridger this summer.
