Sally Singer is leaving her position as editor in chief of T: The New York Times Style Magazine. WWD reports that Singer will leave the mag at the end of the week, and that a successor has not been named. Let the guessing games begin!
Executive editor Jill Abramson wrote a note to staff:
“I’m sorry to announce that Sally Singer will be leaving T magazine and The Times at the end of this month. Sally’s contributions are clear to anyone who’s read the magazine during her tenure. Gorgeous visuals, interesting stories and enterprising features — both in print and online — have been hallmarks of her stewardship. We wish her every success. “
The sudden news is undoubtedly shocking (and tragic to many industry insiders, given the immediate Twitter reaction), and the timing is less than ideal with one week to go before New York Fashion Week. Who’s going to cover every aspect of the fashion industry for T now that Singer’s gone? We’ll just have to wait and see.
