Hearst Taps Coles As U.S. Editor In Chief Of 'Cosmo'
Just a couple of weeks after longtime Cosmopolitan Editor in Chief Helen Gurley Brown died, Hearst Magazines has named Joanna Coles as editor in chief of U.S. Cosmopolitan. Coles was editor in chief of Marie Claire and replaces longtime U.S. Cosmopolitan Editor Kate White, who the company said has "decided to shift focus to her already successful writing and speaking career." White will be staying on at Hearst as an advisor. Coles starts in her new role on Sept. 10th, and will report to Hearst Magazines President David Carey.
