Lucy Kaylin Named EIC of O, The Oprah Magazine

Lucy Kaylin has been named the new editor-in-chief for O, The Oprah Magazine. Kaylin most recently served as the magazine’s deputy editor; a role she held since 2009. She is succeeding Susan Casey, who is leaving O to work on book.

“Lucy brings continuity, fresh energy and big ideas to a title that is already a must-read for millions of women,” said David Carey, president of Hearst Magazines, in a statement. “She is not only a talented writer and editor, she truly embraces and embodies Oprah’s ‘Live Your Best Life’ philosophy, making her the perfect choice for this new role.”

Kaylin starts her new role May 6.
