Although this is a little late for the recent “comics news site editor in chief” diaspora, the old order doth change!
hi! today's my last day as Managing Editor at @CBR, as I'm embarking on an exciting venture in a different industry. it's been a dream job and one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and I'm so proud of what the site's amazing editors and contributors have accomplished.

Albert took the reigns of running CBR after founder Jonah Weiland sold it to Valnet in 2016. But he’s been a contributor to the site for far longer, since 2013, and over the years become a Certified Beat Pal™. Many’s the junket where we shared laughs and gossip, as well as insights and information. He is one of the best and we wish him much success in his new field. And we have a feeling that like many a Comics emigrant, Albert may still show up here and there.
Ching’s successor has yet to be named.
Heidi MacDonald is the founder and editor in chief of The Beat. In the past, she worked for Disney, DC Comics, Fox and Publishers Weekly. She can be heard regularly on the More To Come Podcast. She likes coffee, cats and noble struggle.
