After a year and a half serving as NUVO‘s top editor, Kat Coplen will be leaving the role at the end of January, she on Friday.

“Working with the talented writers, photographers, designers, illustrators, editors, and other buds at NUVO — of whom there‘s literally too many to name without FB shutting down — has been a full-on joy, and exploring Indianapolis as a job is just as good as you think it would be.”

Coplen plans to move to Washington, D.C. for a new job in communications at a research institution, and to be with her long-term partner, who is based there for work.

“After many, many frequent flier miles covering the distance, I‘m relocating to be in the same city as him,” she said. 





Coplen started her career at the city‘s 28-year-old alternative magazine as music editor in 2011 after graduating from Indiana University. She became senior editor in 2015 before when managing editor Ed Wenck left in June 2016.

A for her vacant position is on NUVO‘s website and is described as “one of the best jobs in Indianapolis.”
