NEW YORK, UNITED STATESTeen Vogue just revealed their new top editor.

The Condé Nast brand just appointed Alexi McCammond, most recently a political reporter at Axios, its new editor in chief, taking the reins from Lindsay Peoples Wagner, who left last month to take the top job at The Cut (see it here). McCammond begins her new role on March 24.

“Her interest in fashion, wellness and important issues in the lives of the Teen Vogue audience and broad knowledge of business leaders, elected officials, influencers, photographers and filmmakers is unrivaled, and I’m so very pleased that she will be bringing her expertise and talents to our team,” said Anna Wintour, global editorial director of Vogue and chief content officer of Condé Nast.

During her time at Axios, McCammond was the leading 2020 reporter covering Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. She also shared her reporting on NBC and MSNBC as a contributor, and sat down with elected officials for “Axios on HBO.” 

McCammond got her start in media first as a freelancer for Cosmopolitan and later as a news editor for Bustle during the 2016 election. She joined Axios in 2017 and, during her time there, broke news on the presidential race, former President Trump, and the Democratic Party. McCammond also shared her reporting on NBC and MSNBC as a contributor. In 2019, the National Association of Black Journalists named McCammond “Emerging Journalist of the Year.” A native of Illinois, she graduated from the University of Chicago.

“Teen Vogue is the place where the next generation of our culture’s biggest influencers want to be,” said McCammond. “I’m looking forward to working with the team to build a unique community of ambitious, curious and fashion-forward young leaders and help lift their voices so they can become our next great leaders, thinkers and artists.”
