Mary Murcko Named Self Publisher

The Self upheaval is complete. Condé Nast just announced that Mary Murcko has been named vice president and publisher of the magazine. Murcko was formerly the Gannett Company’s president of national sales. She also previously served as a VP and group publisher at Rodale.

“This is an unprecedented opportunity to cultivate one of Condé Nast’s most dynamic brands,” said Murcko, in a statement. “Reaching the Self audience is more important to marketers than ever before – and creating those opportunities through print, digital, mobile and experiences is truly exciting.”

David Letterman to Leave Late Show (TVNewser)
During the taping of Thursday’s Late Show, David Letterman announced next year will be his last on the show he’s hosted for more than two decades. The news was first reported on Twitter by R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills, a guest on the show, just after 4 p.m. ET. Letterman, who turns 67 next week, signed a contract extension in October. Adweek The duration of the new deal seemed a sure sign that the clock was ticking on Letterman’s late night tenure. Two years prior to signing the extension, the host had agreed to a two-year deal. NYT Letterman said he had informed CBS president Leslie Moonves of his intention to step down from The Late Show at the end of his current contract, which has about 16 months left. A specific end date has not yet been set. Letterman is considered by many to be the most original voice in the late-night format, and Moonves has been steadfast in his assurances in recent years that he would never ask Letterman to retire, saying at one point, “You don’t do that to a television legend.” Mashable Letterman hosted Late Night on NBC from 1982 to 1993 before starting Late Show on CBS in 1993. In 2013, he surpassed Johnny Carson as the longest-running late night talk show host in television history. He has been part of more than 6,000 late-night broadcasts. USA Today It’s unclear how CBS will replace Letterman, and when, precisely. Craig Ferguson, who hosts the Letterman-produced Late Late Show, is not being considered as a replacement, insiders say, even though his contract technically promises it. Moonves is known to have been interested in The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart over the years, but in the past Stewart has said he is not interested in a network talk show. Stewart’s Comedy Central partner Stephen Colbert is seen as a more likely candidate, and is available sooner: His contract with Comedy Central expires in December, though Stewart is free in 2015. Chelsea Handler also announced plans to leave her late-night E! show this year.

Lucy Danziger and Laura McEwen Out at Self

Lucy Danziger and Laura McEwen, editor-in-chief and publisher of Self, respectively, are both leaving the magazine. Danziger had been editor of Self since 2001; McEwen joined as publisher in 2010.

Joyce Chang, most recently executive editor of Cosmopolitan, is replacing Danziger. Before working at Cosmo, Chang served in the same role at Marie Claire. McEwen’s successor will be named soon.

Unsurprisingly, Anna Wintour, Condé Nast’s artistic director, had something to say about Chang coming aboard. Wintour has been revamping Condé titles in her vision, and has been cutting editors who aren’t up to her standards.

“Her [Chang's] diverse resume of experiences has taught her the power of a strong and intelligent woman,” said Wintour, in a statement. “I’m excited to see the new direction she will bring to Self.”

Chang takes over May 1.
