Graydon Carter will turn 65 in July (mark your calendars) and Michael Wolff is speculating about who will rule Vanity Fair when Mr. Carter retires. It’s not that Mr. Carter has actually said anything about retiring or anything, but he’s been in office for 22 years and isn’t getting any younger.
Mr. Wolff uses the occasion to rehash a bunch of Graydon Carter stories and float some names: Mail on Sunday editor Geordie Greig, Dylan Jones, the editor of British GQ (Mr. Wolff is a contributor), Cosmo editor Joanna Coles and Hollywood Reporter editor Janice Min. Or it Anna Wintour could choose a successor. Or Mr. Carter could never leave and keep assigning stories on The Kennedys for the rest of time (or at least the next 20 years). Anything is possible! Either way, there will probably be more of these stories before Mr. Carter every actually steps down. (USA Today)
