The New Republic has named a new publisher and consulting editorial director:
Jack Auresto has assumed the role of deputy Washington bureau chief for the Associated Press, a newly created position that aims to deepen the cross-format collaboration at the bureau. He joined the AP in 2014, and since then has served as the broadcast unit manager for U.S. video working on coverage of big events and breaking news. Before that, Auresto was an assignment manager at WHGH-TV, the NBC affiliate in Boston, and broadcast manager at WFXT-TV, Boston’s Fox affiliate.
The New York Review of Books has named two top editors and an editor at large, almost six months after the departure of Ian Buruma, who abruptly left the outlet in September 2018:
Shraddha Chakradhar has been hired by STAT to write the Morning Rounds newsletter. She replaces Megan Thielking, who has shifted to covering health, medicine and science for the outlet as a reporter. Chakradhar comes with nearly six years of experience as a reporter and editor, most recently as the associate news editor of the biomedical research journal Nature Medicine. Prior to that, she worked at NOVA and other science documentary production companies as a researcher.
Insider Inc. has recruited Siddhartha Mahanta as features editor, working at both Business Insider and Insider. He previously spent three years at The Atlantic, most recently as an associate editor, and before that worked for Foreign Policy magazine as an assistant editor.
Mychaela Bruner has joined Fox-owned KTVI-TV in St. Louis, Missouri, as a reporter and producer. She was previously an anchor/reporter for WPSD-TV in Paducah, Kentucky for five years, and before that spent three years at KOMU-TV in Columbia, Missouri, as a reporter.
