Hugo Lindgren Out as Editor of The New York Times Magazine (Capital New York)
Hugo Lindgren is leaving his position as editor of The New York Times Magazine at the end of the year, Capital has learned. There’s no word yet on plans for a successor. Rumors of a change at the paper’s glossy Sunday supplement leaked out Monday afternoon. But speculation about Lindgren’s future at the magazine has been swirling for some time now, with multiple sources suggesting in recent months that he could be on his way out. The Atlantic Wire Lindgren was hired by Jill Abramson’s predecessor as executive editor, Bill Keller, in 2010. Previously, he’d worked for former Times editor Adam Moss. Among the side-stories emerging from a controversial Politico piece on Abramson last April was a rumor that the executive editor might be looking to shuffle Lindgren out of the magazine editor role. THR There’s no word yet on who will succeed him. Lindgren shook up the Times‘ publication with several personnel changes, jettisoning longtime Ethicist Randy Cohen in favor of Ariel Kaminer, then Chuck Klosterman.
