Adam Rhew Joining Editorial Staff

And a redesign is coming
Andy McMillan
Adam Rhew has proven he'll go all-in for a story.

We love this city, and know our readers do, too. We also love great storytelling and features that make you think.

We’re excited to announce the addition of an outstanding storyteller and native Charlottean to our editorial staff. Adam Rhew will soon be joining Charlotte magazine as Associate Editor. He’ll replace articles editor Lisa Rab, who will continue writing for us (and other publications) in her new job as a fulltime freelance writer. If you’ve read her work, you know she’s certain to be successful. If you haven’t, check out some of her best stories here.

Adam, joining us from Center City Partners, has been freelancing for the magazine since 2012. His byline has appeared in Southern Living, Our State, and on SB Nation. Adam brings more than a talent for longform and an impressive roster of Panthers’ profiles to the magazine; he also grew up here. If you’ve met Adam (or the rest of us), it’s also clear he’ll bring a much better sense of style to the team.

He joins the masthead at a great time for the city and our publication. We’ll be redesigning Charlotte magazine in September, bringing our readers more to celebrate about the city while continuing to provide the news you need to know. Learn more about the redesign in Executive Editor Michael Graff’s editor’s note in the August issue.

Here are our five favorite stories from Adam over the past few years. If that's not enough, see more here. We can’t wait to read what’s next.
