James Ireland Baker Leaves Condé Nast Traveler

James Ireland Baker has left Condé Nast Traveler. Ireland Baker had been executive editor of the magazine since 2010. WWD reports that he resigned at the end of August, and rumors swirled that his quiet departure were connected to a shuffling of the masthead.

Klara Glowczewska, Traveler’s editor-in-chief since 2005, denied that gossip. She told WWD that Ireland Baker will remain a contributor to the magazine and added that he wanted to pursue his novel writing.

“Jim left to devote more time to his writing,” explained Glowczewska. “He just published a great first novel and is hard on work on a second one. I’m very happy for him.”
