NEW IN BEAUTY: Late summer is meant to be slow in media, but it’s also prime time for personnel moves. The health and beauty sector is seeing a lot of action: at Elle, April Long has been named senior beauty and fitness editor. She was previously executive editor at Nylon. Former Self executive editor Dana Points was named editor in chief of Meredith’s Parents magazine, effective September 3. To replace her at Self, Carla Levy has been promoted from nutrition and diet director. Meanwhile, Self’s former deputy beauty director, Leah Wyar, has jumped to Fitness to be beauty director there. She replaces Gwen Flamberg, who went to Us Weekly.

New York magazine has seen three departures in recent weeks. Citysearch said Tuesday that it had hired online food editor, Josh Ozersky, whose Grub Street blog has been twice nominated for a National Magazine Award and won a James Beard Award this year.’s culture blog, Vulture, is losing co-editor Dan Kois — he’s leaving to write a book and will become a special correspondent to the Web site, said a spokeswoman for New York. And the magazine is in the market for a theater critic after Jeremy McCarter left for Newsweek earlier this month after three years in that position. Update your Rolodexes. — Irin Carmon
