We’re pleased to announce that Erin O’Mara has joined The Nation as our new president. Erin brings to the role a great breadth and depth of experience in print and digital publishing, most recently in leading the consulting firm Shain+Oringer, where she placed a particular emphasis on audience development and strategic planning for titles at Johnson Publishing, Taunton Press, Lonely Planet, and other companies.

Erin has a comprehensive understanding of the pressures facing publishing and independent journalism, and a proven ability to balance financial concerns with the mission-based priorities that define an enterprise as unique as The Nation. She shares our deep commitment to developing innovative business avenues that will sustain and enhance The Nation’s mission, its tireless advocacy of progressive ideals, and its fearless investigative journalism. We are excited to have her join us at this pivotal time. Welcome, Erin!
