The New York Times magazine division has seen its mastheads shuffle a lot this year. New York Times T: Style magazine editor Stefano Tonchi (pictured, right) left T for Condé Nast’s W, taking New York Times magazine contributing editor and M.I.A. arch nemesis Lynn Hirschberg with him. Sally Singer, longtime editor at Vogue, subsequently left to become the top editor at T, replacing Tonchi.
Now the New York Observer is reporting that Gerry Marzorati (pictured, left), editor-in-chief of New York Times since 2003, is planning to leave his post for another job within the company.
Marzorati did not return a request for comment. A spokesperson for the Times declined comment.
Not Marzorati's fault, but last year was a particularly rough one in terms of advertising for the magazine. Ad pages fell more than 38 percent, according to the Publishers Information Bureau.
Through March, ad pages are off 8.7 percent.
