Resident Advisor has appointed Whitney Wei as its new editor in chief.
Wei will oversee all editorial content at the electronic music platform, having previously served in the same role at Germany’s Telekom Electronic Beats and reported on club culture for The Guardian and Vogue US.
Wei currently serves on the board of trustees for the Berlin Clubcommission’s Tag der Clubkultur.
“I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to lead RA into its new editorial era,” Wei said. “In taking on this immense responsibility, I put forth my dedication to journalistic integrity and inclusive storytelling to ensure Resident Advisor remains in service to the dance music community.”
