Radhika Jones named Vanity Fair editor in chief
Vanity Fair has announced that Radhika Jones will replace Graydon Carter as its new editor in chief. Carter announced in September that he would be stepping down after 25 years at the helm. Jones has been the editorial director of The New York Times books department and is a former editor of Time magazine. She’ll be the first woman to run Vanity Fair since Tina Brown and the first woman of color to hold the top editing spot at the Condé Nast-owned magazine. Her appointment begins December 11.
