After the resignation of longtime editor in chief Amy Gross, O-The Oprah Magazine has had to cast about for someone to fill the top spot. Today we learned that the new editor will be Susan K. Reed, who since 2002 has been the editor of Golf for Women magazine.
The move may prove to be a bit of shock, if only because Hearst, which operates the magazine, has gone outside the fashion world to replace Gross, who came from Vogue and Elle magazines. Under Gross, O-The Oprah Magazine received its first National Magazine Award in May.
At Golf for Women, Reed won a National Magazine Award for public service for an article on the exclusion of women from the Augusta National Golf Club.--David Schonauer
