Stephen Mooallem Named Exec Editor of Harper’s Bazaar

Stephen Mooallem has been named executive editor of Harper’s Bazaar. Mooallem comes to the magazine from Interview, where he served as editor in chief since 2009.

“Stephen comes to us with great experience and a unique point-of-view that will continue to support the Bazaar mission to be timely but timeless,” said Harper’s Bazaar’s editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey, in a statement. “I am deeply grateful to Kim for her invaluable contributions and commitment to Bazaar. We will miss her considerable talent and wish her all the best in her next endeavor.”

Interview Turns 40, Announces New Look

interview.jpgIt’s been a rough couple of years for Brant Publications, which publishes Interview magazine. But that doesn’t seem to have affected the glossy Q&A magazine, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary with its October issue and — according to a report by WWD — launching a new look next year.

Reports WWD:

“Come spring, [new president Evanly Schindler] said new contributors and photographers will be on the masthead but he declined to provide more details, adding it’s too early to describe how the issue will unfold.”

Interview has seen its leadership change a couple times since longtime editor Ingrid Sichy departed last year. The magazine is now being run by editorial director Fabien Baron, editor-in-chief Stephen Mooallem and creative director Karl Templer, WWD said.

The title’s October issue, which commemorates its 40th birthday, features Twilight star Kristen Stewart on the cover.

New Bosses At Interview, Weather Channel & Current TV

Interview magazine, which was at the center of some controversy at publisher Brant Publications earlier this year, seems to finally have established a powerful editorial team. The New York Times reports today that BlackBook founder Evanly Schindler has been named president of the magazine, while editor Stephen Mooallem, has been promoted to editor-in-chief. Former creative director Karl Templer, who left Interview earlier this year, is returning, and he will report to Fabien Baron, the editorial director who left and then returned last month.

Earlier today, Broadcasting & Cable reported that the Weather Channel is getting a new CEO. The company, which had been searching for a chief for months, named former AOL Media Networks head Michael Kelly to its top spot.

And on Friday, our colleagues at BayNewser revealed that former MTV Networks president Mark Rosenthal had been picked to lead Current Media, the parent company of Current TV and current.com.

There have been some big changes in the media world, and we can probably expect more to come as companies look for new solutions and fresh blood to tackle problems brought on by the economy. And as more executives and top talent get cut from cost-cutting companies, the pool of available people who can run a media organization is growing.
