AARP, our favorite magazine with photos of Jamie Lee Curtis topless, is losing its editor-in-chief, Steve Slon, the Post‘s Keith Kelly reports. Slon told Media Ink, “I resigned because it was time. The job had become a lot more management and a lot less creative.”
In a statement to FishbowlNY, Slon said: “Working at AARP has been a wonderful opportunity. I leave with every confidence that the magazine will continue to dazzle the reading public for years to come.”
Hugh Delehanty, editor-in-chief and senior vice president, publications will helm the magazine, which boasts a circulation of 22 million, until a replacement is found. Senior vice president, publications, Catherine Ventura-Merkel, will also play a larger part in steering AARP‘s editorial direction.
