NY Times Mag Makes Changes

A streamlining of sorts.

Some changes are coming to The New York Times Magazine. The Ethicists column and podcast — which was revamped to feature multiple authors only eight months ago — is no more. Also, Ana Marie Cox is taking over the Talk column.

Starting with the Oct. 4 issue, The Ethicist will once again be penned by one person — Kwame Anthony Appiah, a professor of philosophy and law and New York University.

The Talk column, which has been written by multiple people, will now be Cox’s alone. “Ana Marie is a tough and funny interviewer who has a rare ability to get people to drop their talking points and speak frankly,” said Times Mag editor Jake Silverstein, in an announcement.
