Lucky Publisher Gina Sanders Picked To Lead Fairchild

PHOTO of Gina.jpgIt didn’t take long for Condé Nast to find a replacement for Richard Beckman. The magazine publisher has dipped into its own pool of publishers and picked Lucky publisher Gina Sanders to lead the Fairchild Fashion Group, which publishes Women’s Wear Daily.

Sanders joined Lucky in 2008 from Teen Vogue, where she was also publisher, during a major restructuring at Condé. She started her career at the publishing house more than 20 years ago, at House & Garden and went on to work at Details and Gourmet before Teen Vogue.

Sanders is replacing Beckman, who left the company last week to join newly formed media company e5 Global Media, starting on February 1.

Full release after the jump.

Glamour Exec Managing Editor Joins Food Network Magazine

maria.jpgFood Network Magazine announced a handful of appointments today, including the addition of Maria Baugh as managing editor.

Most recently, Baugh was executive managing editor at Glamour. She has also worked as managing editor at House & Garden and executive editor at InStyle and Teen People. But Baugh has earned her foodie cred as the owner of Butter Lane cupcakes.

FNM also hired three people in marketing, including two integrated marketing managers, Amy Santoriello and Adam Roth. Santoriello is joining the magazine from Parenting magazine, and Roth formerly worked at Details. Kelsey Stokes was also hired as marketing coordinator.

The magazine has been working to expand its marketing department recently, adding new staffers and promoting others just last month.

Swine Flu Hits Conde Nast As Newhouse Profile Hits Newsstands

nymag.pngThis morning, a warning went out to all of Conde Nast‘s New York employees that an employee on the 12th floor of the company’s 4 Times Square headquarters had tested positive for swine flu. (If you’re hip to Conde HQ you know that floor is where Vogue is housed.)

But since the memo noted that the infected employee is “under a doctor’s care and currently recovering at home,” the media company was probably more worried this morning about the latest New York magazine cover story, which profiled Conde chairman Si Newhouse.

Steve Fishman‘s in-depth profile attempts to get to the heart of Newhouse’s psyche, quoting an anonymous source who calls him “semi-blank,” and asserting that he surrounds himself with superstar editors who represent a part of himself that he can’t express on his own. “In a sense, he’s like a polished surface, and the editors tend to see themselves in him,” Fishman wrote.

And of course Fishman can’t ignore the fact that Conde Nast is in the red despite closing a number of magazines in the past two years, including, most recently, Portfolio. Still, he points out that “The belief around the building is that next year, if the economy recovers, Conde Nast will again turn profitable.” Fishman doesn’t let on if he agrees, but he does mention that there are still rumors of more magazine closings to come. “Which will be next? Wired? Architectural Digest? Does the company really need two food magazines?”

As a former Conde employee ourselves, we did find at least one omission in Fishman’s reporting. His list of shuttered publications — Jane, House & Garden, Men’s Vogue, Golf for Women, Domino and Portfolio — he left out our former home, the men’s wear trade DNR.
