Jeff made a comment on the live stream last night of Giantbomb officially accepting a new senior editor into the pack.

The chat went pretty mad, with a lot of random (and after some twitter stalking) so educated assumptions. However, does anyone know who this new editor is?

People say a lot of things. Personally, I'm going to wait for word from Jeff and co.

That's the big question isn't it?

I'm willing to bet that nobody but the staff and the editor in question know, so... beyond having another thread devoted to wild speculation to who the new hire will be, this thread seems to serve little purpose.

If it is indeed Jared Rosen I would be very pleased.

The rumor is that it is the guy who wrote this piece:

How The Most Expensive Game Jam In History Crashed And Burned In A Single Day

If so, good on them. He has integrity, good writing skills, and connections withing the gaming and game aficionado industry. He also has some novel ideas like the hot pepper thing, though some are already angry because he was attached to a spoof video of someone making a Top 5 Video Game babes thing in YouTube.

It's Vinny. Before he left he uploaded his consciousness into Cool Baby.

There is not nearly enough information out there on that dude to either be excited or disappointed with him being a part of Giant Bomb. So there's really not much point in being judgy about it until we actually know for sure, and he actually tries integrating into the site's content.

I mean, the only thing I can tell about the guy is that he's obviously super ambitious and gets his name out there all the ways he can; that could either be super awesome or a nightmare.

This is the first I've heard of this Jared Rosen rumor, but I'd be totally on board with that. He's got an overall pretty solid resume for a young up and comer.

There's already a bunch of guessing going on in multiple other topics including the original "we're hiring" thread. Since no announcement has been made and no one knows yet, there is really no reason to leave this thread open and splinter the discussion yet again.

So the answer is, no one knows yet.
