Marina Khidekel has been named the new deputy editor at Cosmopolitan, FishbowlNY reports. Ms. Khidekel comes over to the Hearst tower from Condé Nast, where she was a senior articles editor at Glamour and covered health.This is the latest in a series of staffing changes at the magazine since Joanna Coles took the helm as EIC in September. Last week, Ms. Coles fired nine staffers–seven of whom were in the features department.

“New incoming editors in chief often want to form their own teams,”a Cosmopolitan spokesperson said last week. “We will be announcing more new hires shortly.”

Looks like the spokesperson meant it when she said shortly. Ms. Khidekel started at Cosmo this week, according to Media Bistro.
