Editor-in-chief, New York magazineInterview: Wednesday, November 14, 2012Manhattan, New York
Adam Moss is described by media critic David Carr as ‘one of the best editors working in a hybrid age’ (Carr 2010). Before joining New York in 2004, he edited The New York Times Magazine, and was assistant managing editor for features at the newspaper. Earlier he spent six years as editor of Esquire and was the founder of 7 Days, a magazine covering New York arts and culture.
New York has won many awards, most recently for ‘general excellence, print and digital’ given by the US-based National Magazine Awards in 2014. The previous year, it won Print Magazine of the Year and Cover of the Year, for a cover about Hurricane Sandy in November 2012 [Fig. 1. Storm]. The magazine has also significantly expanded its online and mobile presence.
Since the interview, the magazine announced that its print version was moving from weekly to biweekly frequency, explaining the aim of the change as ‘combining the timeliness of a weekly with the heft of a monthly’ (New York 2014).
