Sarah Carey is Everyday Food’s New EIC

Looks like the Post’s sources were well informed. FishbowlNY just received official word from Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (MSLO) that Sarah Carey is replacing Anna Last as the Editor-in-Chief of Everday Food.

“I can think of no better person to serve as its Editor-in-Chief than Sarah Carey,” said Martha Stewart. “As our readers, viewers, users and listeners know, Sarah is a passionate cook and extremely knowledgeable about food. She has so much to offer this brand and our enthusiastic consumers, and I am happy to have her at the helm of this wonderful magazine.”

As for Last, Stewart wished her well. “I’d like to thank Anna Last for steering both print and digital issues of the magazine over the past two and a half years. Anna has been instrumental in building a loyal base of readers for Everyday Food, and for delivering extremely high levels of reader satisfaction.”

According to MSLO, Last is leaving the company to pursue other interests.

Changes Coming to Everyday Food

Sarah Carey is expected to be named the new Edit0r-in-Chief of Everyday Food as soon as today, according to The New York Post. Carey is the current food editor for Martha Stewart Living, and a veteran of parent Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.

Unfortunately this news is coming as a surprise to Everyday Food’s current top editor, Anna Last. “I’m very happy at Everyday Food,” Last said. “As far as I’m concerned, we’re looking forward to 2012. There’s no truth to that.”

We guess today is the day we all find out how solid the Post’s sources are.
