Washington, D.C. (August 3, 2017)—As The Atlantic continues to expand internationally, Editor in Chief Jeffrey Goldberg announced today the addition of three journalists to its global reporting team.
Rachel Donadio, recently the European culture correspondent for The New York Times, will be The Atlantic’s culture and politics writer based in Paris; Yasmeen Serhan joins the newly established London bureau as a reporter; and from Washington, Krishnadev Calamur, currently The Atlantic’s news editor, will begin this fall as a global diplomacy correspondent covering U.S.-Europe relations, the State Department, and foreign policy. Already in place is The Atlantic’s staff writer Sophie Gilbert, who returned to her native London this summer and continues her coverage of culture and entertainment. James Fallows, previously announced as The Atlantic’s first European Editor, arrives to lead the London bureau later this month.
“We’re committed to excellent and comprehensive coverage of Europe, as indicated by the team we’re building,” said Goldberg. “The addition of Rachel Donadio, one of the finest foreign correspondents in American journalism, is a boon to our efforts. And the addition of Krishnadev, one of our ace newshounds, and Yasmeen, one of our brightest young stars, to this team means that we come at this set of subjects with real strength.”
