STEFANO TONCHI: Appointed Editor-In-Chief of W Magazine

Big news in the editorial world today. Stefano Tonchi, the former Editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, has been appointed Editor-in-Chief of the unparalleled Condé Nast fashion magazine, W. Mr. Tonchi joined The New York Times as style editor for the company’s magazine in 2003. He had previously been a Fashion and Creative Director at magazines including Esquire, and the Condé Nast publications Self and L’Uomo Vogue.

"I had a really wonderful six years at the Times,” Mr. Tonchi said in today's New York Times announcement. The move was “taking a new challenge and going to a company whose priority is publishing magazines, versus, you know, a company whose priority is publishing a newspaper.”
