Smithsonian Editor Carey Winfrey to Step Down From Role
No successor has been named for editorial role.
Carey Winfrey, the editor of Smithsonian magazine since 2001, has announced his resignation from the publication, effective September 30th.
The third editor in Smithsonian magazineâs 40 year run, Winfrey said about his departure, âAfter 10 years, itâs time to give somebody else a chance.â At this time, no successor has been named.
The search for Smithsonian magazineâs next editor will reportedly commence soon.
Smithsonian magazine currently has a circulation of two million. It was also named âMost Interestingâ magazine in an Affinity American Magazine study earlier in 2011.
Before Winfrey, Don Moser ran Smithsonian for twenty years. Winfrey said he considered, "...keeping a mathematical progression going, but I don't think my knees would hold up."
Preceding Moser was founding editor Ed Thompson, who held the title for 10 years.
In February 2010, Time Inc. announced partnership with Smithsonian Media in order to include the brand within its corporate sales division.
