omag_200807_cover_75x102.jpgHearst Magazines has just announced that Susan K. Reed has been appointed editor-in-chief of the U.S. edition of O, The Oprah Magazine, effective July 29. Reed comes to O from Golf For Women where she has been editor-in-chief since February 2002 and will replace current head Amy Gross, who is retiring.

During Reed’s tenure Golf For Women was nominated for its first National Magazine Award in Public Service from the American Society of Magazine Editors in 2003 for a piece it did on the exclusion of women at Augusta National Golf Club. Says Oprah: “Susan understands the O, The Oprah Magazine kind of optimism and will continue to communicate it to our readers with informative and inspirational stories each month.”
