All Good Things Come To An End: Michelle Lee Steps Down As EIC Of Nylon
All good things come to an end; especially in the print industry (most print publications has transitioned into the digital world).
Fashion journalist Michelle Lee has stepped down as editor-in-chief and chief marketing officer of Nylon, a position that she held since June 2014.
Nylon‘s deputy editor Melissa Giannini is Lee‘s successor as EIC. She won’t take on the role as CMO. Giannini is not new to the publication. She has been with Nylon for over three years.
“We’re thrilled to have an experienced editor like Melissa move into this role so we can ensure a seamless transition,” said Paul Greenberg, CEO. “She is the perfect person for the position, as she fully understands the Nylon brand with her tailored editorial background and time with the company specifically. At the same time, we thank Michelle for her superb work at Nylon and wish her the best.”
In other media news, donbleek.com could officially confirm that Joe McKenna has exited T: The New York Times Style magazine. McKenna served as the magazine’s fashion director at large.
The magazine’s editor in chief Deborah Needleman said to WWD, “It’s true he’s not working with us anymore. His contract is finished and we aren’t renewing. I have great respect for him and am proud of the work we did together.”
