Sally Singer is out at T, according to the paper’s executive editor Jill Abramson. No reason was given for the departure, which marks the second time in two years that the New York Times Style Magazine has been without a captain. The Vogue veteran took over at T in 2010 when its then editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi defected to W, setting off a reshuffling throughout the industry.
During her tenure, Singer reshaped the magazine with the thoughtful and holistic view of culture, her hallmark during her decade at Vogue. She once described the impact she had made during her first year at T by saying: “I mean, is it a download of my brain? Sure. It should be. A good magazine should be a download of the editor’s brain.”
This week is her last. No word yet on her next move or her replacement.
