Lauren Kern Named First Editor-in-Chief of Apple News

Politico:

Morning Media has learned that Apple has given the job — a new position at the Cupertino-based company — to Lauren Kern, one of New York magazine’s most high-ranking editors and a former deputy editor at The New York Times Magazine. It’s unclear what exactly the role will entail, and Kern declined to comment.

I tweeted this morning that I recently moved the News app to the Home screen of my iPhone and iPad. I enjoy it—it looks nice and the reading experience is highly accessible.
