NEW GUY AT O:
As Susan Casey takes the reins as editor in chief of O, The Oprah Magazine, the magazine may be getting a new look. Design director Kerry Robertson has left and is being succeeded on an interim basis by Robert Priest. The well-regarded Priest was most recently design director at Condé Nast Portfolio, and years ago worked on the launch of the now-defunct O at Home.

“With any new editor in chief there are often staff changes,” said a spokeswoman for the magazine. Priest started on Wednesday. Casey was named last month to succeed Susan Reed, who left the magazine after less than a year. The long-successful O has struggled on the newsstand, dropping 25 percent in single copy sales in the second half of 2008. So far this year through the May issue, there have been bright spots that helped boost the average despite some weaker months: over 1.1 million copies sold of the January weight loss-themed issue, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations Rapid Report, and a jump from a Michelle Obama cover that sold 825,000 copies.
