Anup-Kaphle-BuzzFeed

I’m few days late but I just found out that ANUP KAPHLE will be joining BuzzFeed as a Senior World Editor! That is amazing – I love BuzzFeed. It’s the best way to procrastinate and once you start reading and scrolling, you easily lose track of time. In all seriousness, the website is great with the news, info and facts it puts out and highlights. I must blame BuzzFeed for my new-found fascination with cats too and let’s not forget that the comments on the BuzzFeed posts are another form of entertainment on a whole new level. Kaphle will be making the move from The Washington Post where he was the ‘Digital Foreign Editor’.

He made the announcement from his Facebook account:

A small personal announcement:

After an incredible 5½ years at The Washington Post, I’m leaving the newspaper to join BuzzFeed as a Senior World Editor.

Although I’m sad to leave an institution that has helped me grow tremendously as a journalist, I leave here very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with some of the finest reporters and editors in the world. More specifically, the last four years working at the foreign desk have been the most exciting and rewarding experience of my life.

International reporting is evolving and so is the foreign desk. As our industry experiments by blending traditional reporting with emerging digital trends, the need to constantly rethink how to provide information to a global audience has never been more urgent.

I’m very excited about working for BuzzFeed, which has been doing a lot of that rethinking and experimenting, as we collectively try to figure out a formula for engaging ways to tell stories in a constantly evolving digital world. As BuzzFeed continues to build a robust news operation, I feel incredibly lucky to be able play a role in expanding its readership.

Oh, and goats are the new cats.

Wait. What. GOATS are the new cats? Let’s start with Red Pandaaassss!!!
