We will miss having him in the office every day, though we’re delighted he will be an advisor to BuzzFeed transitioning his work with all of you.

Both of us believe we have all built something special here, and the company is in spectacular shape and primed for even greater things in the future.

We’re so thankful for Jon’s leadership that helped get us here. He will always be family to us. We are growing and continuing our mission of building a media company that is anchored around social, and a business that is transforming the advertising industry.

We think the best days are ahead for BuzzFeed . Thank you all for your hard work and we’re excited about pressing forward to continue to do huge things! Jon will say his own good-byes to you over the next few weeks but even after that he will be available to us.

Onward,

Jonah and Jon
