Jonathan Fischer joins WaPo as arts and entertainment editor
Jonathan Fischer joined The Washington Post as arts and entertainment editor. In this newly created role, Fischer will lead The Post’s reporters, critics and editors across the full range of culture, from television to opera.
According to The Post, Fischer “will begin a process of rethinking our A&E coverage, which starts with a subject-focused realignment: Janice Page will now edit movies coverage; Nicole Arthur will edit television and music; Steven Johnson will edit art and videogames; and Zachary Pincus-Roth will edit theater.”
Fischer comes to The Post from Slate, where for the past nine years he ran a business, tech and media section that included coverage of cities, architecture and design – and wrote the occasional movie review. Before Slate, he worked at Washington City Paper from 2009 to 2014, where he was arts editor and then managing editor.
