Meet Cord Jefferson, Gawker’s new West Coast guy

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

Gawker, the gossip aggregator that occasionally lapses into good taste, has a new West Coast editor, Cord Jefferson. Here’s the top of his self-introduction, which normally would imply that it’s what he most wants folks to know about him:

Ahoy, ahoy. My name is Cord Jefferson, and today is my first day at Gawker. You may have seen some of my work on the site before (and maybe on Jezebel and Gizmodo, too), but today I'm coming on full-time as your West Coast Editor. I live in Los Angeles, and thus will be the first California staffer since Seth Abramovitch left in January. I'm also the first staffer (on record) to watch hardcore pornography in Fred Willard's favorite Hollywood peep show.

That’s Gawker’s photo of its new editor outside the peeper.
