NY Times to Wait on Naming Editor for NY Times Magazine

Ever since we learned that The New York Times Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Hugo Lindgren, was leaving at the end of the year, we’ve been wondering — who will succeed him? According to a note from the Times’ executive editor, Jill Abramson, it will be… Well, she’s not sure yet.

Abramson explained that for the next three months, Dean Baquet, the Times’ managing editor, and Deborah Needleman, editor of T Magazine, will “plunge into the challenges facing the magazine.” The challenges Abramson listed:

There are urgent issues and questions: how to make the magazine the fount of our richest, most immersive multimedia reading; which long reads belong in the A book and which might fare better with editing and presentation in the magazine; should there be more dedicated staff writers, how do we forge stronger relationships with the best of our freelancers in an ever more competitive environment?

Abramson said that by appointing Baquet and Needleman to lead the magazine, “It allows us to hit the pause button and think in a more disciplined way about where we want the magazine to go. Then will come the moment to appoint a new editor to lead the way.”

The full note from Abramson is below.

Welcome to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle. Today we have The New York Times Magazine versus Town & Country. The Times Magazine went with a photograph of everyone’s favorite couple, Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner.

Chuck Klosterman Discusses His Non-Role Role in the David Petraeus Scandal

The media demands that the non-essential be essential, and so we now know what Chuck Klosterman thinks of his peculiar involvement in the David Petraues scandal. In July, Klosterman addressed a question in his Ethicist column for New York Times Magazine that many now speculate was written by Paula Broadwell’s husband.

The question was from an anonymous husband whose wife was cheating on him with a “government executive,” whose job was “to manage a project whose progress is seen worldwide as a demonstration of American leadership.” It sounded a lot like something Broadwell’s husband would talk about. However, Hugo Lindgren, editor of the Times Magazine, denied this was the case.

Despite Lindgren’s statement, the media storm picked up, and so it was only natural that Klosterman addressed the situation.
