Tops at T... Filling Some Spots... Seventeen Breaks Up With ANTM...

After a long and relatively quiet selection process, sources say The New York Times is close to revealing its pick for editor in chief of T.

FILLING SOME SPOTS: In other staffing news, New York has filled two top editorial slots, one via an internal promotion and another by way of a poach. The magazine has bumped senior editor Jon Steinberg to the all-important position of Strategist editor, where he succeeds Janet Ozzard, who departed in February to become editor in chief of Daily Candy. Steinberg had been its acting editor since Ozzard’s departure. And on the online side, the magazine has tapped Ashlea Halpern, formerly Time Out New York’s editor at large/shopping & style editor, to be fashion editor of, effective June 2. Halpern’s primary responsibilities will include overseeing the blog The Cut and directing the site’s shopping and fashion week coverage. Halpern succeeds Amina Akhtar, who, among other things, launched The Cut and the Shop-A-Matic tool during her three-plus years at the site; Akhtar left in March to become editorial director and partner at iStyle Media, a social media company.

Elsewhere on the Internet, tapped Celia Ellenberg as senior beauty editor. Ellenberg, who had been freelancing for the site, will now supervise the Beauty Counter blog and oversee the expanded beauty coverage, video and other interactive features, which, a spokeswoman avowed, are all in the works.
