Sweeping Changes at Self

We have a suggestion for Self staffers — duck, because the axe is swinging. Mary Murcko and Joyce Chang — the glossy’s publisher and editor, respectively — have only been on the job for three weeks, but they’re already making sweeping changes.

According to Adweek, Self’s executive director, creative director, web director, entertainment editor, fashion editor, associate publisher for sales and associate publisher for marketing have all been cut. Yikes.

The moves are a result of Chang’s goal to change Self from a fitness magazine to more of a women’s general interest title.
