Turmoil at Nylon as New CEO, Editors Resign

Turmoil continues to envelope Nylon magazine. According to The New York Post, Nylon’s new CEO Joe Mohen — who just two weeks ago forced out the magazine’s founders — is leaving. Also departing the glossy are associate publisher Karim Abay and executive editor Ashley Baker.

Nylon’s founders — editor-in-chief Marvin Scott Jarrett and his wife, publisher Jaclynn Jarrett — were ousted after the majority stake of the magazine was, unbeknownst to them, sold to Mohen. Mohen has now turned around and sold his stake to Diversis Capital.

As for what’s left at NylonDana Fields, the glossy’s chief revenue officer and publisher, is now steering the ship. “I am leading the editor-in-chief search,” Fields told the Post. “The edit and business side report to me.”

Tune in next week when we report that Fields is gone, Mohen is back, and two monkeys get tasked with editing the magazine.
