WHOSE TIME FOR T?: The staff at T: The New York Times Style Magazine was shocked when editor in chief Sally Singer announced on Wednesday that she would be leaving the company by the end of the week. It appears the same could not be said for executives at the Times, who are already talking to a few possible successors.

Deborah Needleman, editor of rival WSJ. Magazine, has been mentioned as a possibility, although many insiders believe she wouldn’t walk away from her current gig, where she oversees the glossy magazine and the Off Duty section in The Wall Street Journal’s Weekend Edition. Needleman, reached on Thursday on a beach in Indiana, far removed from the New York media world, said, “I love my job. I’m focusing on our fall-winter issues right now from the Midwest.”

GQ deputy editor Michael Hainey has also been mentioned by several sources as a possible successor to Singer. He was said to be considered for the job two years ago but was passed over for Singer. He could not be reached for comment. Another name being bandied about is Styles editor Stuart Emmrich, who is known to be a favorite of the Times’ top brass. He declined comment Wednesday.
