0624gerrystefano Gerry Marzorati to Step Down as Editor of The New York Times MagazineThe Observer has learned that Gerry Marzorati will announce in the next few days that he is stepping down as editor of The Times Magazine. He is expected to leave at the end of August. Sources familiar with the situation have told us that he will get another job within the Times Company.

Mr. Marzorati took over the magazine in 2003, succeeding Adam Moss. Mr. Marzorati started at the magazine in 1994 as an articles editor.

This has been a period of a lot of change for all the Times Magazine properties. Stefano Tonchi, the editor of T, left in March to take over W magazine. Lynn Hirschberg, a longtime writer at The Times Magazine, left to become an editor-at-large at W. Paul Tough, the magazine’s story editor, took a buyout back in December. Kira Pollack, the magazine’s deputy photo editor, left for Time last year to become its director of photography. And Matt Bai, the magazine’s political writer, shifted to the newspaper to become a columnist. Sally Singer was recently named the editor of T.

Mr. Marzorati did not respond to a phone call seeking comment.
