AND ANOTHER ONE GOES, TOO: Speaking of people leaving The New York Times, Mark Lotto, an op-ed page staff editor, is heading to GQ to become a senior editor. Lotto has been an editor for the op-ed page for just over five years, and his departure comes three months after Times op-ed editor David Shipley left for Bloomberg.
“GQ has always been my absolute favorite magazine,” said Lotto. “At its most serious and at its most fun, it’s just an incredible read every month.”
Lotto is the latest hire for GQ as editor in chief Jim Nelson restocks a recently depleted masthead. Over the past five months, the monthly magazine has had several high-level departures: Style editor Adam Rapoport went to Bon Appétit to become editor in chief; senior editor Joel Lovell and staff writer Alex Pappademas left to go to The New York Times Magazine; editorial projects director Mark Healy is now deputy editor at Men’s Journal; fashion editor Damien Nunes has left the magazine, and correspondent John Jeremiah Sullivan is now a contributing editor at the Times magazine (no word on whether Sullivan will continue writing for GQ).
In addition to Lotto, GQ has hired Donovan Hohn from Harper’s to become the new features editor; Jonathan Wilde has joined from Men’s Journal to become a senior editor; Lauren Bans, recently a reporter at The Daily, will be an associate editor, and Lance Lin, a public relations director for men’s wear at Polo Ralph Lauren, will start as the new fashion editor on April 4.
