After some days of speculation, Joanna Coles announces her exit from Hearst on an Instagram video.
Coles joined Hearst in 2006 as editor-in-chief of Marie Claire. In 2012 she was appointed editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan and editorial director of Seventeen since 2014. She was appointed Hearst's first chief content officer in September 2016.
Walking on her iconic treadmill desk, Coles says: "It's time for a new adventure, I'm going to take some time off".
Coles closed the announcement saying "I'll have more news on the fall, but for now, I'm switching the treadmill desk off".
The news comes less than two weeks after Troy Young being named president of Hearst.
Hearst is a member of FIPP.
