Independent editor-in-chief Simon Kelner announced on Twitter today that Jemima Khan is joining the Independent and i as associate editor.
Khan generated masses of publicity when she guest edited the New Statesman in April, interviewing Nick Clegg and getting ex-boyfriend Hugh Grant to secretly tape a conversation with a one time News of the World journalist.
She described the experience as "a great C.V." for her new job at the Independent.
I am a freelance journalist based in the UK and was deputy editor of Press Gazette, the journalists' magazine, from 1993 until 2006. I want to give an independent view on media matters.
