Jon Auerbach has been named the Editor-in-Chief of Metro US, over seeing the paper’s editorial operations in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, according to a staff memo first posted on the Romenesko media news site.
Having started out at Fairchild Publications, Auerbach has worked as a business reporter at the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal, and was eventually Assistant Managing Editor and Sunday Editor of Post, according to the memo, sent by the Philadelphia paper’s publisher, Eric Mayberry. He has also worked as a Senior Producer for “Newsnight with Aaron Brown,” and was most recently Executive Editor of Star Magazine.
The memo also singled out acting Editor-in-Chief Maggie Samways for her work over the past seven months. The previous editor, Mark Moore, was let go September: “When duty called Maggie stepped up to the task at hand not only continuing to put out our great newspaper everyday, but also overseeing the complications of our redesign and decentralization projects. Truly a team player, Maggie deserves all of our gratitude and congratulations on a job well done.”
