Runners and Riders for New Guardian Editor

  • Janine Gibson – Seen as the heiress apparent, this year Janine came home from the US to be deputy editor and editor-in-chief of the Guardian website
  • Katharine Viner – Replaced Gibson as editor of Guardian US, might she leapfrog her predecessor?
  • Emily Wilson – Former UK network editor of the website, now she is Down Under having taken over from Viner.
  • Dan Sabbagh – 94/1
  • Amol Rajan – Time for a person of colour?
  • James Ball – Has written every story of significance in the Guardian for the last 10 years, or so he claims.
  • Edward Snowden – You can run a paper from Skype, right?
  • Frank Fisher – Right-wing legend who writes most of Comment is Free (in the comments).
  • Russell Brand – King of the C U Next Tuesdays.
  • Jonathan Freedland – Sound on Palestine.
  • Ian Katz – Return of the Prince from the Guardian’s broadcasting arm.

Surely it’s time for the Guardian to have their first non-private school educated editor?
