Martha Stewart Living Names Editor-at-Large

Pilar Guzman is bringing some of her old friends from Cookie with her to Martha Stewart Living. FishbowlNY just learned that she’s added Yolanda Edwards, a travel and lifestyle editor at Cookie, to Martha Stewart as an Editor-at-Large.

At Martha Stewart Edwards will work with the photo and art departments as well as create, assign and develop articles.

Four Women Editors and Their Journey Back to Print

WWD has a post today about four women editors – Pilar Guzman (pictured), Tina Brown, Brandon Holley, and Deborah Needleman – and their journey from print to the web, then back to print again.

It’s a story that deserves to be told. After all, these are four powerful, talented women who are shaping the magazine industry with their decisions.

The content of the post is all fine and dandy; the headline, however, is not. It irks FishbowlNY a bit. And when we’re bothered, we bother you with the details. As Janet once said, that’s the way love goes.

The post is titled “Is Print in Vogue Again?” and like all headlines that ask a question, the answer is nowhere to be found in the piece. We do learn that the women all seem to have come back to print for the money, but not if print is “cool,” as the headline suggests.

If you’re going to ask a question, be able to answer it. That’s all we want.

For example:
“Does FishbowlNY hate headlines that contain questions?”

“Yes.”

Martha Stewart Living Names New Editor-in-Chief

Min is reporting that Pilar Guzmán has been named the new Editor-in-Chief of Martha Stewart Living. Guzman was the Editor-in-Chief of Cookie when it was still around, and since then has co-founded a parenting website and co-written a cookbook.

Guzmán’s first day will be the 14th, and she will report directly to Chief Creative and Editorial Director Gael Towey.


Bon Appétit Down To Two Candidates For Editor

In September Condé Nast announced that they were moving Bon Appétit from Los Angeles to New York City and replacing editor Barbara Fairchild in the process.  According to Matthew Lynch of WWD,  the search for Fairchild’s successor has been narrowed down to two names: former Cookie editor-in-chief, Pilar Guzman, and Epicurious.com editor-in-chief, Tanya Steel.

Both candidates come with their fair share of experience.  Guzman edited Cookie from its inception in November 2005 until its fold in October 2009.  She made Crain’s 2008 40 Under 40 list and also co-authored Cookie‘s Time for Dinner cookbook and is planning to launch her own website, Momfilter.com.  Prior to stepping in as editor-in-chief at Epicurious, Tanya Steel worked as Bon Appétit‘s “New York editor.”  Steel has also appeared on Gordon Ramsay’s hit series, Hell’s Kitchen.
