For­ward Pres­i­dent An­nounces Re­tire­ment

Forward Magazine - - News -

“The Forverts and the For­ward have al­ways been the gold stan­dard in Amer­i­can Jewish jour­nal­ism,” Norich said, “so we knew from the out­set that we had to meet a very high bar. The growth of our read­er­ship and the awards we’ve won over the years at­test to our suc­cess.”

“Whether it’s our re­port­ing on Agripro­ces­sors, the largest kosher meat­pack­ing plant in the coun­try, where they abused their mostly im­mi­grant work­ers, or the bril­liant comics by Art Spiegel­man af­ter 9/11, by Ben Katchor or Liana Finck, our re­port­ing from Iran, our ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with Pres­i­dent Obama in the Oval Of­fice, or our ar­ti­cles re­veal­ing the past af­fil­i­a­tions of Se­bas­tian Gorka, a staff mem­ber of the White House’s na­tional se­cu­rity team, the For­ward has told our story like no other pub­li­ca­tion.”

“I never ex­pected to be at the For­ward’s helm for two decades, but it’s a spe­cial priv­i­lege to have taken this his­toric news­pa­per into its 120th year. And I’m par­tic­u­larly proud of hav­ing been able to po­si­tion three ex­traor­di­nar­ily tal­ented women Rachel Fish­man Fed­der­sen ( pub­lisher and CEO), Jane Eisner (edi­tor-in-chief of the For­ward) and Rukhl Schaechter (edi­tor of the Forverts) — to lead the pub­li­ca­tion into the next decade.”
