Joyce Chang named editor-in-chief of 'Self' magazine

Interesting... Magazine giant Conde Nast recently announced that Joyce Chang, current executive editor of Cosmopolitan, will replace Lucy Danziger as editor-in-chief of Self. She'll take over the job starting next month.

Cosmo's Joyce Chang Replaces Lucy Danziger as Editor in Chief of Self

The news comes not long after the recent events of "tutugate," where Self found itself under criticism for running an insensitive feature mocking a tutu-clad marathon runner who also happened to be a cancer survivor. However, rumors about an editorial shakeup have apparently been swirling at Self for months.

In addition to Cosmopolitan, Chang's resume includes stints at Marie Claire, People StyleWatch, People Magazine, Lucky, The New York Times Magazine and Allure.

Chang has had an illustrious career to date and is a veteran of two Condé Nast titles—Lucky and Allure.

Prior to Hearst's Cosmo, Chang was executive editor at Marie Claire and held editorial roles at Time Inc.'s People StyleWatch and People, as well as The New York Times Magazine. Chang is also the third of Cosmo editor in chief Joanna Coles’ former executive editors to become the editor in chief another title—Lucy Kaylin, the editor of O, The Oprah Magazine, and Anne Fulenwider, editor of Marie Claire (and, prior to that, Brides), both served as Coles’ second-in-command at Marie Claire.

"I am so pleased to welcome Joyce back to Condé Nast," said Wintour in a statement. "Her diverse resume of experiences has taught her the power of a strong and intelligent woman. I’m excited to see the new direction she will bring to Self."
