Nicole Saunders Is Leaving Uptown Magazine

maxwell-cover-uptown04152010.jpgManaging editor Nicole Saunders is leaving Uptown Magazine, the bimonthly lifestyle mag for affluent African-Americans. She had been at Uptown for two and a half years. She started there as a freelancer in December 2007.

Saunders tells FishbowlNY she’s resuming her career as a health writer Correction: taking a job with Kaiser Family Foundation out in California. “In this new role I’ll get to work on public health campaigns with media outlets, so it’s a natural fit for me,” she said in an email. “Also, I’ve worked in mag publishing for about 10 years—ever since I graduated college — and I’ve lived in the tri state area my entire life so I’m ready for new challenges on a number of levels.” She starts her new gig May 17.

The magazine is currently looking for a replacement, so dust off your resumes and butter up your references, readers.
