“It’s been a privilege to have helped shape artnet News from its infancy and to have watched it very quickly establish itself as a go-to source for information about the art world and the art market for viewers all around the world,” Jovanovic said. The site receives more than 1 million visitors a month, making it the most widely visited, dedicated art news site in the world.

In making the announcement, artnet News editor-in-chief Benjamin Genocchio praised Jovanovic for her calm manner, knowledge, and experience. “She’s super smart, brave, demanding but always in a gracious way,” he said in an email message to staff. “She is also an outstanding reporter, well known and liked in the art community, all of which make her an ideal choice for the role. I look forward to working closely with her to continue to deliver accurate, timely, informative and fun art news on a daily basis.”
Jovanovic says that she is excited for all that is to come ahead. “I’m thrilled to be able to bring my experience to this new role at a company like artnet, a pioneer of the online art marketplace, which has peerless international reach and goodwill.”
