T Magazine announced several key editorial posts and new hires. In making the announcements, Deborah Needleman, editor in chief of T Magazine, said, “T was essentially in start-up mode over the last couple years.
With a lean staff, we recast the editorial direction of the magazine, broadening it into a general-interest style magazine, examining stories through the lens of culture and ideas. The business grew by 15% (ad pages in 2014 vs. 2012), and we are now positioning ourselves for future growth and opportunity.” Tmagazine.com will relaunch in August.
Whitney Vargas has been promoted to executive editor of T. Ms. Vargas, who joined the magazine with Ms. Needleman in 2012, was previously T’s deputy editor. In this new role, she takes more responsibility for the day-to-day running of the magazine.
