You’ve seen her byline all over the site for the past several weeks, and now we’re ready to make it official: We are happy to announce that Elaine Chow is the new Editor of Shanghaiist.
Elaine replaces the beloved Kenneth Tan, who did an amazing job as editor since the summer of 2007. Thankfully, Kenneth is not totally leaving us. He’ll still contribute occasionally and is assuming the “Editor at Large” role (and, yes, we are still trying to figure out what that title means).
Elaine is also a contributing editor at Gizmodo (perhaps you’ve heard of it?). She has a journalism degree from NYU and she went to high school in Shanghai. She has excellent taste in music and beer and dominates in trivia. Get to know her.
