May 26, 2021
By Rebecca Schweitzer [COPY] “I love new challenges,” said Lance Lambert, a 2014 Arts & Sciences Journalism and Economics graduate from the University of Cincinnati. From his time at A&S, Lambert has held positions at five companies in the fast-growing field of data journalism. As of February, Lambert had risen through the ranks at Fortune Magazine to be named Analytics Editor and Editorial Director of Fortune Magazine. Data journalism is an ever-growing sector of journalism that focuses on the collection of reader data and the use of infographics to convey story topics to these readers. By the use of data journalism, writers can include more factual and statistical information in stories. Lambert began working for Fortune Magazine in 2019 as an Associate Data Editor. He has since earned two promotions, first to Analytics Editor after founding Fortune Analytics, a data newsletter. His second and most recent promotion has been to Editorial Director of Fortune Education.
