Swati Sharma is leading a new era in Vox’s mission to “explain the world”

In 2014, Melissa Bell, Ezra Klein, and Matt Yglesias started Vox.com, a news outlet that pioneered explanatory journalism. Seven years, 13 podcasts, one Netflix series, and millions of readers later, Vox’s leadership was ready for change. In 2020, Klein, who was last the editor-at-large, left to join The New York Times as a columnist. Yglesias went independent and started his own Substack newsletter, Slow Boring. SVP and editor-in-chief Lauren Williams left to cofound Capital B, a newsroom to cover Black America. Bell is Vox’s publisher.
