New York Times staff editor Jessica Lustig will be a deputy editor at The New York Times Magazine, according to a staff memo from Jake Silverstein, the magazine’s editor-in-chief.
Lustig, who currently works for The New York Times Op-Ed/Sunday Review, will be a “huge asset to the Magazine,” Silverstein writes:
She brings a keen nose for writers, a brilliant sense of the ideas that animate stories, and a steady hand with copy. She has an incredibly smart feel for where the conversation is, something that will be a driving force in the magazine’s relaunch, and her excellent taste and deep moral engagement will help guide our coverage.
Bill Wasik, deputy editor at the magazine, tweeted that he will work alongside Lustig:
