|UNWILLING TO RELOCATE
But Conde Nast said Bon Appetit editor in chief Barbara Fairchild will help oversee the move to New York.
Nearly a year after shuttering Gourmet magazine, Conde Nast is shaking up the food world once again.
The publisher said yesterday that longtime Bon Appetit editor in chief Barbara Fairchild will step down later this year when Conde Nast moves the magazine’s headquarters from California to New York. The company said the move is part of an overall effort to consolidate.
Fairchild — who has been with the magazine for 32 years, the last 10 of which she served as editor — will help oversee the transition, but was unwilling to relocate, said Conde Nast spokeswoman Maurie Perl. The firm said Fairchild is leaving to pursue other opportunities, including projects with Conde Nast.
Fairchild could not immediately be reached for comment.
It was unclear who would replace Fairchild. In a written release, Conde Nast said it would name a new editor after the move to New York.
