Meredith Corp announced that Amy Conway has been named editor-in-chief of Health, effective immediately. In her new role, Conway oversees content and editorial operations for the Health brand.
Conway comes to Health from Martha Stewart Weddings, where she has been editor-in-chief since January 2016. As a long-time writer and editor for the Martha Stewart brands, Conway has held several leadership roles, including editor at large and executive editor of Martha Stewart Living; editor of Martha Stewart’s best-selling cookbooks, Martha Stewart’s Cookies and Martha Stewart’s Cooking School; and executive editor of Everyday Food.
“Amy brings tremendous insight as an editor with a great depth of knowledge and vast experience in women’s lifestyle content, along with proven editorial leadership,” says Liz Vaccariello, VP/group editorial director for Meredith. “We are so happy to have her lead Health, and are confident she will enhance the appeal of this brand to existing and new readers alike.”
A marathon runner, Conway is very avid about health and wellness. “Health and wellness are topics I’m extremely passionate about,” says Conway. “I am thrilled to lead the talented Health team and look forward to providing readers with the information and inspiration they need to live well in every way.”
Conway is based at Meredith’s New York office. She succeeds Lori Leibovich, who worked across several Meredith brands, including Health and Real Simple, and is pursuing a return to digital media.
