Bill Kristol Passes the Weekly Standard Torch| People on the Move — 12.14.16
Working Mother has a new EIC, Women's Health and Cosmo play musical chairs, and more...
In a note to readers Monday, Kristol wrote that he will continue to write weekly editorials, while contributing to the website, and writing longer features. He will take the title editor-at-large.
“When we started the magazine in 1995, we hoped we'd last a while,” Kristol wrote. “It's gratifying that we're still going strong a generation later, and I appreciate more than I can say the efforts of all those who've made this possible.”
Stephen Hayes was promoted to the newly created role of EIC from his role as senior writer. Deputy editor Richard Starr will take on the role of editor.
Here are the rest of this week's people on the move…
Working Mother has named Meredith Bodgas its new editor-in-chief. Bodgas joins the Bonnier Corp. brand from her role as executive editor for Bauer Xcel Media. She replaces editorial director Jennifer Owens, who is leaving the company.
Marina Khidekel is now senior deputy editor of Women’s Health. She joins from her role as deputy editor at Cosmopolitan, a title which has seen an exodus of top editorial talent in the last few weeks. Perhaps not coincidentally, then-deputy editor Sascha de Gersdorff left Women's Health to join Cosmo as executive editor on December 1.
Dean Stattmann was promoted to brand editor of Men’s Health from his post as deputy editor of digital projects.
The Atlantic continues its hiring spree with the addition of Rosie Gray covering global affairs and U.S. politics for TheAtlantic.com. Gray joins from the political team at Buzzfeed News.
