Greg Veis, current editor of TNR.com, is off to join the ranks at The New York Times Magazine, according to Daily Intel. A memo informed New Republic staff members earlier today that he will start at the magazine in December as a front-of-the-book editor.
The hire is Hugo Lindgren’s second since taking over the editor’s seat at The Times Magazine last month. He pulled Lauren Kern — a former colleague of his at New York — from her position at O: The Oprah Magazine to come aboard as deputy editor. Lindgren told Women’s Wear Daily that there wouldn’t be much staff overhaul as he began to implement his vision at the magazine. “There’s no shortage of talent,” he said.
