Jonathon Dornbush Steps Back from IGN Entertainment
Before Jonathon Dornbush graduated from New York University in 2014, he had done video and editorial internships at Polygon and served as Washington Square News’ editor-in-chief. After college, he joined Entertainment Weekly as an intern and was promoted to assistant editor in six months.
He moved from New York to San Francisco when he joined IGN Entertainment in 2016. He started as an associate editor handling a variety of content before he rose to news editor, host, and producer in 2018.
Dornbush began producing and hosting the PlayStation show, Beyond! since then and steadily gained a following. In recent years, he was promoted to senior news editor and senior features editor while continuing to produce other IGN content alongside hosting Beyond!
I’ll discuss what’s next soon. And I’ll save my sappy goodbye tweets for my actual last day this week.
But for now, if you’ve been a part of or supported Beyond! in any way while I hosted, thank you. It has been my honor to host a show that meant so much to me
