I’m pleased to announce that Jonathan S. Tobin, who has served as COMMENTARY Magazine’s executive editor since January 2009, is assuming new responsibilities at the institution. He is becoming both our Senior Online Editor and taking on expanded responsibilities as our chief blogger on politics as we head into the 2012 election. Before joining COMMENTARY, Tobin was the editor of Jewish newspapers in Philadelphia and Connecticut.
Working with Tobin, in the position of Online Editor, is D. G. Myers, also known as David. Myers is a literary critic and literary historian at the Melton Center for Jewish Studies at the Ohio State University, where he has alighted after a long stint as a professor of English at Texas A&M University. Myers has written frequently for COMMENTARY on matters literary and Jewish, and maintains his own website on such things, called A Commonplace Blog.
