Following the departure of editor in chief Elaine Welteroth, TeenVogue.com is moving full steam ahead under the leadership of chief content officer Phillip Picardi who is building out his team. The first new addition to the team since Mr. Picardi took charge is Samhita Mukhopadhyay who joins from Mic.com as TeenVogue.com’s new executive editor. Ms. Mukhopadhyay’s addition signals that Mr. Picardi intends to amplify TeenVogue’s political and social issues voice. While Ms. Mukhopadhyay was at Mic.com she covered hot button issues like The Movement for Black Lives, Islamophobia, trans issues, and sexual assault on college campuses. This keeps TeenVogue on the path blazed by Ms. Welteroth during her time at the publication.
Said Mr. Picardi:
“I have admired Samhita’s work from afar for quite some time. I deeply respect her ability to tackle complex topics and distill them in a sensible way for a young, engaged, and conscientious audience. After getting to know Samhita through this process, I am confident that her experience as an editor and a leader is exactly what we need to further propel Teen Vogue into the future.”
