Self continues its transition under the leadership of publisher Mary Murcko and editor Joyce Chang. According to WWD, eight have been cut from the magazine, including six from the fashion department and one each from the photo and art departments.
When Murcko and Chang took over the title in April, they didn’t wait long — only three weeks — before dropping Self’s executive director, creative director, web director, entertainment editor, fashion editor, associate publisher for sales and associate publisher for marketing. Then, just a few weeks later, Murcko and Chang conducted a round of hirings.
Just like in April, a few hires have been made on the heels of the eight people getting cut this week. Self has hired Dania Ortiz as fashion market and accessories director; Lori Cohn and Tammy Cohen as beauty executive directors; and Lexie McCarthy as northwest account director.
Be sure to check back in two weeks when seven more people are fired and five new people are hired.
