“I love Cosmo, but I gave it everything I had, I just didn’t have another sex position in me.”
UPDATE: Hearst has named former Yahoo Health Editor Michele Promaulayko to succeed Joanna Coles as editor in chief of Cosmopolitan. Ms. Promaulayko will also serve as editorial director of Seventeen. She once served as Cosmopolitan’s Executive Editor.
That was part of long time Cosmopolitan Editor in Chief Joanna Cole’s parting statement as she takes on a huge new role at Hearst Magazines. Ms. Cole is Hearst Magazine’s new and first ever Chief Content Officer. This puts her on par with Alan Murray at Time Inc. The move makes sense as Ms. Cole has been stepping outside her role at Cosmopolitan to work on other projects within Hearst. Over the past year she’s taken on the role of a Silicon Valley liaison and Last year was credited for bringing about the Airbnb magazine project. The company will name her replacement at Cosmo before the end of the day. Could it be Linda Wells?
In her new role, Ms. Coles will work closely with Hearst editors and
oversee the company’s magazines in the United States and
internationally. She will also look to identify new business
opportunities and partnerships for Hearst in areas including television
and live events, with the goal of extending the company’s brands beyond
just print magazines and websites.
