Lucy Danziger and Laura McEwen Out at Self

Lucy Danziger and Laura McEwen, editor-in-chief and publisher of Self, respectively, are both leaving the magazine. Danziger had been editor of Self since 2001; McEwen joined as publisher in 2010.

Joyce Chang, most recently executive editor of Cosmopolitan, is replacing Danziger. Before working at Cosmo, Chang served in the same role at Marie Claire. McEwen’s successor will be named soon.

Unsurprisingly, Anna Wintour, Condé Nast’s artistic director, had something to say about Chang coming aboard. Wintour has been revamping Condé titles in her vision, and has been cutting editors who aren’t up to her standards.

“Her [Chang's] diverse resume of experiences has taught her the power of a strong and intelligent woman,” said Wintour, in a statement. “I’m excited to see the new direction she will bring to Self.”

Chang takes over May 1.
