This Just In: Conde Nast Moving Bon Appetit To NY, EIC Fairchild Out

Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema just tweeted:

“This just in: Conde Nast plans to move Bon Appetit from LA to NY. Top editor Barbara Fairchild will bid adieu after 32 years.”

As soon as we know more, we’ll update this post.

Update: MediaWeek has a statement from Conde Nast CEO Chuck Townsend: “The move of Bon Appétit’s editorial headquarters to New York is part of the company’s continuing efforts to strategically align our brands for future growth and to enhance efficiencies and coordination by consolidating our assets.”

The New York Observer notes that the announcement was “lumped into a press release that announced that the magazine, like Architectural Digest, would relocate from the west coast to New York.”
