Haskell will formally step into the role on April 1. He has worked at the company since 2007 in a variety of roles, most recently as editor for business and strategy (since late 2016), shaping the magazine and editing features while also leading editorial strategy for books, film, television, podcasts, and events across the magazine and its digital verticals. He will be the eighth editor-in-chief in the magazine’s 50-year history.
“When Adam told me that he’d be stepping down, it was quickly apparent to me that David should be the person to succeed him, and I’m thrilled that he accepted the challenge. He is a brilliant editor, boundlessly creative, and always inventive in the service of our journalism. We have worked closely together, particularly in the last two years, when he has helped us to establish new business ventures that build on our legacy in exciting ways. I know that he will uphold the highest standards of excellence and delight our readers,” said Pam Wasserstein.
“David Haskell is a superb editor with wide-ranging curiosity, unerring taste, reverence for talent and mastery at making magazines. Especially useful at this juncture, he is also a natural and proven entrepreneur, and he will be a perfect partner to Pam Wasserstein going forward. I have known David his entire career and I am confident New York Media’s creative future across multiple arenas is in excellent hands,” said Adam Moss.
“For almost twelve years, New York Magazine has been my family, Adam my mentor and friend, and the work we publish my favourite to read. It’s hard to imagine New York without Adam, but at the same time, his fingerprints are all over this place—and he is leaving us having built the finest editorial department in our 50-year history. I’m wildly grateful to him for this legacy, and to Pam for trusting me with the future of this very special place,” said Haskell. “We are living through an extraordinary time in American life, one eerily well suited to New York’s strengths and obsessions. It’s now my job to make sure we cover it all with the intelligence and creativity our readers have come to expect.”
