Michelle Lee Named EIC of Nylon

Michelle Lee has been named the new editor-in-chief of Nylon. Lee comes to the magazine from Magnified Media, where she served as chief content and strategy officer since last year. She previously served as editor-in-chief of InTouch, from 2004 to 2012.

Lee takes over a publication that has seen its share of chaos over the last couple months. In May alone, Nylon lost its CEO — who had only been there for two weeks — and its associate publisher and executive editor.

In an effort to settle things down and perhaps change the culture a bit, Lee said she plans to expand features and hire more writers. “The basic DNA has always been style and culture, and I don’t want to change that,” she told the Post. “But I feel Nylon can be a little edgier and a little flashier.”
