Jake Silverstein Named Editor of NY Times Magazine

The New York Times Magazine finally has a replacement for Hugo Lindgren. Jake Silverstein, most recently the editor-in-chief of Texas Monthly, is the new editor of the Times Magazine. The title had been without an editor since Lindgren left in January.

Silverstein had been editor of Texas Monthly for the past six years. During his time there it received 12 National Magazine Award nominations and won four times.

Jill Abramson, executive editor of the Times, said the hiring of Silverstein marked a new beginning for the Times Magazine. “With Jake at the helm, the Magazine will be redesigned, making it more beguiling, displaying more of the best riches of the Times,” she said, in a statement. “The traditional magazine forms will continue — narratives, deep profiles, investigative reporting, essays, photography — and others will be invented.”
