The Baffler Names Chris Lehmann Editor in Chief

A promotion.

The Baffler has named Chris Lehmann editor in chief. Lehmann most recently served as a senior editor.

Lehman previously worked for Bookforum and Yahoo. He is succeeding John Summers, who is stepping down to spend more time with his family.

“[Summers] informed the board of his intent to leave his position last fall,” a Baffler spokesperson told Politico, in a statement. “Having secured a reliable funding stream for the magazine, Mr. Summers took a family leave on May 18 of this year to begin his transition.”
