Republic: Oliver Fuchs steps down as editor-in-chief

It was only in February that Oliver Fuchs took over the editorship ad interim at Republik. "The position of editor-in-chief in a daily magazine is a wearing job," the magazine wrote in Tuesday's newsletter about his resignation, which will take place at the end of 2022, and is now urgently looking for a successor. With Katharina Hemmer and Amanda Strub, Republik has a new double-GL.

As it says in Tuesday's newsletter, Oliver Fuchs is giving up the editorship of Republic at the end of 2022. This was announced in a newsletter on Tuesday. He had in February taken over by Christof Moser, previously he was deputy editor-in-chief since May 2019 ( reported).

Because "every position after editor-in-chief is a strange one," Fuchs will be the Republic at the end of February, according to the newsletter. The magazine regrets that nothing permanent has resulted from the interim solution. Oliver Fuchs had "done a convincing job" and "organized a minor generation change behind the scenes with energy, alertness, and friendliness.

With Fuchs' resignation, the recruitment process for a definitive editor-in-chief, which has been underway for some time, becomes even more urgent, writes the Repubic further, hoping for "as long-term a solution as possible."

On the other hand, there is good news from the management. "Katharina Hemmer and Amanda Strub, who had taken over the management ad interim since September, are now doing so definitively," says the newsletter.
