New York Magazine is showing its podcast ambitions with the hiring of Hanna Rosin as Editorial Director for Audio. The NPR veteran will lead the direction of the magazine’s podcast ambitions. New York says it plans to “greatly expand” its footprint in a variety of podcast efforts. “Hanna’s impressive career in both magazines and podcasts makes her the ideal candidate to expand New York’s work in audio,” said Editor-in-Chief David Haskell.
Rosin will oversee New York’s existing podcast programming — such as Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway’s Pivot, Jesse David Fox’s Good One, and the upcoming podcast from The Cut. The company says she’ll also work closely with the sister Vox Media Podcast Network team, including VP/Executive Producer Nishat Kurwa. But Haskell said Rosin will be rooted at the magazine. Vox is the parent company to New York magazine.
“Love my new colleagues and excited to be at a place where print and audio meet,” said Rosin in a Twitter post.
Rosin was previously co-host of the NPR show Invisibilia, which recently surpassed 100 million total downloads. She earlier worked as a writer for The Atlantic as well as for Slate, where she founded its women’s section and hosted the Waves podcast. She is the author of two books, including “The End of Men: And the Rise of Women,” which was a national best seller.
