Anna Wintour and Sally Singer at fashion week
After months of speculation and rumours, it is now been confirmed that Vogue's Sally Singer has been appointed editor-in-chief of T: The New York Times Style Magazine.
The news came asT's digital director Horacio Silva, took to the magazine's Twitter account today confirming the news. The announcement was revealed to the magazine's team on Tuesday whereby Bill Keller, the magazine's executive editor, said: "As her resume — and her successes at Vogue — will testify, she has the combination of aesthetic sense and intellectual curiosity suited to a style magazine that wears the name of The New York Times.” Although they received a healthy amount of interest for the position, unsurprisingly Singer shone through the pack. "We were looking for someone with the imagination and taste to envision the next generation of this extraordinary franchise, and the experience to make it happen," Keller said.
The move comes a time where there has been a lot of movement between Condé Nast and The Times, particularly after T's former editor, Stefano Tonchi moved to Condé Nast's W magazine in April.
Since the news was released, everyone have taken to their Twiiter accounts to wish Singer good luck and dicuss the announcement.
