MoJo Announces New CEO and Publisher


As some of you know, last November, after 19 years of unflinching commitment to fiercely independent investigative journalism, Jay Harris stepped down as the publisher of Mother Jones. Following a short transition period, earlier this month the Mother Jones board of directors named Madeleine Buckingham chief executive officer, and Steve Katz Mother Jones’ new publisher.

See the recent press release for more information. And feel free to offer your congrats/wishes/etc. in the comments!

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
