Well you didn’t think Conde Nast would be having all the fun did you? We hope not because over at Hearst, the fun seems to just be starting with the departure of ELLE’s long time editor in chief Robbie Myers. Via a memo earlier today Ms. Myers who sat atop ELLE’s masthead for 17 years informed her team of her departure. This major announcement comes just days after Graydon Carter who helmed Conde Nast’s Vanity Fair for over two decades announced his departure. Like we said the fun is just beginning at Hearst as another high profile departure is expected to follow right behind Ms. Myers. Harper’s Bazaar editor in chief Glenda Bailey is rumored to have one foot out the door and her departure announcement is believed to be imminent.
Said Robbie Myers to her team:
“When I started in this role, it was with the best mission an editor can give herself: To open women’s appetites. And I surrounded myself with the smartest, most creative people, you, to both magnify what Elle stood for—strong, confident women who play a leading role in creating a culture that honors all of us—and expand the idea of what American beauty really looks like.”
