Jim will lead on all media coverage across print and digital, working closely with the Guardian’s media business correspondent Mark Sweney.
Jim Waterson has been political editor of BuzzFeed UK since 2013, when he helped to start the site's UK news coverage. Before that he spent two years as a politics and business reporter at City A.M.
Katharine Viner, editor-in-chief, Guardian News & Media said: “I'm delighted that Jim is to join the Guardian as media editor. He will bring a terrific instinct for news and a deep understanding of digital media to this important role.”
Jim Waterson said: "The Guardian's media coverage has long been the best in the business and I'm excited to follow in the footsteps of some fantastic journalists. The media business is going through a period of enormous change, the public is waking up to the impact that major internet companies are having on society, and there's huge interest in the behind-the-scenes forces which shape the news agenda.
“I'm looking forward to reporting on these stories during an incredibly turbulent age for the industry."
The Guardian’s roster of media commentators includes Emily Bell, Jane Martinson, Roy Greenslade and Hugh Muir.
