Naomi Zeichner named editor-in-chief of The FADER
Zeichner returns to the magazine after a stint at BuzzFeed as music editor
The FADER has a new editor-in-chief: Naomi Zeichner, who returns after a brief stint at BuzzFeed where she was music editor.
Zeichner originally joined The FADER in 2010 as a music intern, later became associate editor, and then was named senior editor.
“Naomi is an incredible talent. Her creativity, taste and insider knowledge of the industry defines what The FADER stands for,” publisher Andy Cohn said in the company’s announcement. “She’s re-joining an immensely talented group of editors, writers, designers and photographers, and we couldn’t be happier to have her back as we head into an exciting time for The FADER, with some major announcements to come.”
“The FADER has always felt like home to me,” Zeichner said. “I enjoyed and learned a lot from my time at BuzzFeed, but I’m returning to The FADER because I’m as passionate about being a part of music culture as I am about being a part of media. With the thoughtful writers, impeccable taste, and commitment to original photography it has today, The FADER is in an exceptional position to create content that feels personal and worth sharing.”
