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!

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
