Check Out The New Yorker‘s Masthead

new yorker cover.jpgCondé Nast weekly The New Yorker doesn’t publish a masthead, so its staff, titles and editorial structure is sort of a well-kept secret. And, it’s one of the few Condé pubs to mostly survive the massive staff cuts that hit the magazine publisher recently. We admit to more than a little curiosity about what that masthead might look like these days.

Being curious himself, The New York Observer‘s John Koblin has done the legwork and put together a masthead for the venerable pub. It’s a hefty list, which includes more than 60 staff writers — although Koblin is quick to point out “that because of the unique, internal logic of the magazine, job titles are a strange thing — someone who may be a staff writer may have only contributed a single piece in the last few years.”

As New Yorker editor-in-chief David Remnick explained to Koblin:

“If The New Yorker is going to be worthy of the name and achieve a level of prose or accuracy or depth, or if it’s going to give the reporters or writers the time they need to achieve what I hope we can achieve, we can’t do it with a minuscule staff.”
