Everyone wants a Singer on their team.
Despite several rumors throughout the past few weeks, it's official: Sally Singer is the new editor-in-chief of New York Times' T Magazine. It was announced through the official Twitter page of the NYT.
She leaves her old job as the fashion news and features director at Vogue to staff Stefano Tonchi's old position. Prior to joining Vogue in 1999, Singer also had stints at Elle and British Vogue.
The move couldn't have happened at a better time but was still a hard decision to make, according to Singer. “It seemed like the right time to have a new challenge — and Bill Keller [the Times’ executive editor] is very persuasive… I’m a very loyal person and I don’t make moves easily… It was entirely emotional. It’s going from one job I love to another place that I love but don’t know as well.”
So, how is Miss Anna Wintour taking the news? Surprisingly well, considering she has already found Singer's replacement. Eve MacSweeney and Mark Holgate were promoted to features director and fashion news director, respectively. Some might not be taking the news as well though. After the news hit twitter, Canadian magazine editor Paul Aguirre responded with "If this is true, I'm going to drink bleach." Uh, oh…
Singer starts her new position July 5.
