OUT OF TEXAS: The New York Times Magazine has found itself an editor. Jake Silverstein, editor in chief of Texas Monthly, has been named editor of The New York Times Magazine, the newspaper said Friday afternoon.

Silverstein, 38, became editor of Texas Monthly in 2008. He succeeds former NYT magazine editor Hugo Lindgren, who departed The Times in November. Lindgren eventually resurfaced in January as The Hollywood Reporter’s acting editor for a three-month period.

Since Lindgren’s departure, The Times has been on the hunt for a successor, with T: The New York Times Style Magazine’s Deborah Needleman and Times managing editor Dean Baquet working with the magazine’s current staff to put out weekly issues.

Executive editor Jill Abramson said the magazine will be redesigned under his watch.
