GQ Hires New York Times’ Mark Lotto As Senior Editor

GQ has been in something of a hiring spate lately, and now Mark Lotto, formerly a New York Times op-ed staff editor, is moving to GQ to become a senior editor, WWD reports.

The announcement of Lotto’s departure comes merely three months after Times op-ed co editor David Shipley left for Bloomberg.

While the Times certainly seems to be shedding journalists today, GQ is taking them on. The magazine has also hired Jonathan Wilde from Men’s Journal as a senior editor, Donovan Hohn from Harper’s is to become the new features editor, and Lauren Bans has already left her recent position at The Daily to be an associate editor. Finally, as we announced yesterday,  Lance Lin, a public relations director for men’s wear at Polo Ralph Lauren, will be starting as the new GQ fashion editor on April 4.
