Cristina Greeven Cuomo Becomes Editor-in-Chief of ‘Manhattan’; Says ‘We Will be Staffing Up’

The new editor-in-chief of Manhattan magazine has been announced and it’s none other than Cristina Greeven Cuomo. She replaces James Heidenry who left Modern Luxury Media to become the editor-in-chief of Star.

Prior to this new job, she edited PlumHamptons magazine before the parent company, Plum Networks, hit bankruptcy last year.

As pointed out by The New York Post, one of her first tasks on the job may be to hire staff! Currently, Manhattan only has two full-time editorial staffers.

In fact, Cuomo indicated the small staff could actually be a good thing so she can bolster it by adding freelancers and staffers. She told the newspaper, “I’ll be bringing in some people to work under me. We will be staffing up.”

Shake Up at Modern Luxury Media

Another day, another report about turmoil at a magazine.

According to the New York Post’s Media Ink column, Manhattan magazine hasn’t had an editor-in-chief for about a month and now it doesn’t have a publisher or associate publisher either.

As pointed out in the piece, six people were laid off last week including publisher Leslie Wolfson and associate publisher David Baer. In fact, Matthew Carroll currently heads up national ad sales and will take on responsibilities as publisher.

As for the editor-in-chief post, it’s been vacant for a few weeks since James Heidenry resigned to take the helm of Star. Sources indicate Modern Luxury Media is close to filling the position.
