The Intercept's editor-in-chief, John Cook, who spent the year tripling our staff size and significantly increasing our daily journalistic output, is leaving at the end of the year to return to Gawker Media. Deputy Editor Ryan Tate will continue to work with John and the rest of the newsroom to effect a smooth transition until the search for Cook's permanent replacement, already underway, is completed.

"Working with my Intercept colleagues has been one of the most fulfilling things I've done in my career, and my decision to leave was a painful one to make," Cook said. "But I feel comfortable leaving in the knowledge that it is now perfectly situated to become a powerful journalistic force under new editorial leadership."

Cook led The Intercept beginning the month after its launch last February. With last week's addition of a new National Security Editor, Sharon Weinberger, and another reporter, he oversaw its expansion into a current staff of two dozen journalists and editors, with multiple new hires already budgeted over the next several months. That is on top of First Look Media's team of research specialists, technologists, graphics experts, and lawyers who regularly work with our journalists and editors.
