Media Moves at Teen Vogue & Travel + Leisure, Two Join the Business Desk of The Columbian

Condé Nast has named Lindsay Peoples Wagner editor in chief of Teen Vogue, effective Oct. 18.  She will oversee digital, social, video and events including the Teen Vogue Summit. Peoples Wagner succeeds Phillip Picardi who is leaving later this month to helm OUT magazine. Peoples Wagner is wrapping up her duties as fashion editor of The Cut, a position she has held since 2015. Her writing has gained traction for focusing on race, culture and politics through the lens of fashion and beauty. 

The Washington bureau of The Wall Street Journal has welcomed a new reporter, while another has shuffled his beats:

  • Byron Tau now covers the Department of Justice, the FBI, criminal justice law, national security and espionage. He previously covered Congress, and has been with WSJ since 2014. 

Nathan Lump, editor in chief of Travel + Leisure, will leave the magazine at the close of the December issue. Lump has been with the magazine since 2014, and has also worked in a broader capacity for Meredith Corp. as editorial director of Departures, Food & Wine and Cooking Light, since 2016. 

The Columbian, the daily newspaper in Vancouver, Washington, has hired an editor and a reporter, both joining the business desk:

  • Allan Brettman is the paper's new business editor. He was previously a freelance writer, and before that spent 15 years at The Oregonian as a reporter. 
  • Anthony Macuk has joined the staff as a business reporter. He comes from the Lake Oswego Review, where he was a reporter and then assistant editor. 

Central Penn Business Journal managing editor Cathy Hirko now also oversees the Lehigh Valley Business Journal as managing editor.
