Carol Smith Out As Publishing Director For Condé Nast’s Food Group

Earlier today, New York Times writer Jeremy W. Peters revealed via Twitter that Carol Smith is out as the publishing director of Condé Nast’s food group. Bill Wackermann has been promoted to executive vice president, publishing director of Glamour, Brides, W, and Details and will assume additional business responsibilities for Bon Appétit and the Gourmet brand. He was formerly Condé Nast’s publishing director for W, Glamour, Brides and Details.

His first order of business has been naming Paul Jowdy vice president and publisher of Bon Appétit and the Gourmet brand. Jowdy has held this position before, prior to becoming senior executive director under Smith.

Smith had jumped ship to Condé Nast from Elle — where she had worked as the title’s senior vice president and chief brand officer — fairly recently, in April of this year.
