The New Yorker

David Remnick was named editor of The New Yorker in 1998. He joined the publication in 1992 after ten years with The Washington Post, where he was the Moscow bureau chief.

He is the author of several books, including King of the World, Resurrection, and Lenin’s Tomb, for which he received the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction and a George Polk Award for excellence in journalism. His most recent book, The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama, was published by Knopf in 2010. Since joining The New Yorker, he has written more than a hundred pieces for the magazine. He also serves as the host of the magazine’s national radio program and podcast, The New Yorker Radio Hour, which airs weekly. Under Remnick’s leadership, The New Yorker has become the country’s most honored magazine, with a hundred and fifty-six National Magazine Award nominations and forty-one wins, and, in a first for a magazine, two Pulitzer Prizes. In 2016, Remnick was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
