Vanity Fair to Name Radhika Jones as New Editor (Report)

NY Times Books Editor is expected to succeed Graydon Carter

Radhika Jones, editorial director of The New York Times’ books department and former editor of Time Magazine, is expected to be announced as the new editor of Vanity Fair.

According to a report from the Times, Vanity Fair’s publisher, Conde Nast, is expected to make the announcement on Monday. Jones will succeed outgoing editor Graydon Carter, who announced in September that he will end his 25-year career at the magazine in December.

Jones was reportedly selected by Conde Nast CEO Robert Sauerberg with the help of several top editors at the publisher’s outlets, including Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and New Yorker editor David Remnick.

Jones has worked as deputy managing editor at Time, managing the magazine’s annual Time 100 issue. She also worked at the Paris Review, Grand Street, Artforum, and The Moscow Times.
