Creative Loafing Atlanta editor Debbie Michaud will leave next month to join the international humanitarian agency CARE as a digital content strategist:
“I have loved having the opportunity to work for such a vital publication in one of the greatest cities on the planet,” she says. “But most of all I feel honored to have met and worked with some of greatest people ever, many of whom I’m lucky enough to count as friends.”
Michaud’s history with CL began with an editorial internship in 2003, when the publication was located on Willoughby Way in the Old Fourth Ward. She joined the staff in 2006 as events editor and rose through the ranks as arts and culture editor and senior editor. She was named editor in chief in 2012.
Thomas Wheatley will serve as interim editor until a replacement is named.
