NYT Magazine Poaches from Wired| People on the Move – 9.7.16
A new food director for Real Simple, a publisher leaves Elle Decor, and more...
Caitlin Roper will join The New York Times Magazine in the newly created role of special projects editor. The role was created to address the various projects under the magazine’s name which aren’t part of its weekly publication.
“Our portfolio has grown a lot over the past two years,” editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein said in a statement. “The magazine isn’t just a magazine anymore. We’re now involved in virtual reality, live events, podcasts, and special newspaper sections, just to name a few things. Caitlin is going to be instrumental in helping us manage this growth and execute on these exciting initiatives.”
Roper will leave her position as articles editor at Wired, where she’s worked since 2011. Formerly, she was the managing editor of The Paris Review.
