Hearst names Michael Sebastian Esquire editor-in-chief

Ad Age veteran Michael Sebastian has been named the new editor-in-chief of Esquire, Hearst Magazines announced today. Sebastian succeeds Jay Fielden, who took over in 2016 and announced his imminent departure last month. Sebastian has had a couple of digital-focused roles at Hearst—including serving as digital director for the magazine, overseeing Esquire.com, since May 2017. Before joining Hearst in 2015, he was the media reporter at Ad Age. Sebastian’s appointment follows the recent trend at Hearst Magazines of elevating digital-centric journalists to overseeing legacy brands across both print and digital. Last October, Jessica Pels, the digital director of Cosmopolitan.com, was named editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan. Here’s the full statement from Hearst Magazines, which also covers the elevation of Nick Sullivan to creative director: Hearst Magazines today announced that Michael Sebastian has been named editor-in-chief of Esquire, overseeing print and digital content, strategy and operations. In addition, Nick Sullivan, Esquire’s fashion director since 2004, has been promoted to creative director, a new role for the brand. The announcement was made by Hearst President and CEO Steven R. Swartz and Hearst Magazines President Troy Young.   Sebastian, who has been digital director of Esquire since 2017, will continue to report to Hearst Magazines Chief Content Officer Kate Lewis. He succeeds Jay Fielden, who stepped down last month after leading the print editorial... Continue reading at 'Advertising Age'
