Staff News from T Magazine – The New York Times Company


Jared Hohlt will be joining T as editorial director, and Kurt Soller has been promoted to deputy editor. Read more in this note from Hanya Yanagihara.
Dear T’ers,
I’m delighted to announce two staff changes. The first is that Jared Hohlt will be joining us as editorial director. Those of you who know Jared, in person or just by reputation, know well how lucky we are to have him. Over the years, he’s edited features, packages, investigations and profiles on everything from architecture, fashion, the Supreme Court and gun violence, to the national elections, design, theater criticism and art at Metropolis, New York magazine, and Slate, where he was most recently editor in chief. He’s overseen both one of the greatest print magazines ever and a pioneering digital publication, and is the most exceptional editor I’ve worked with in all my years of magazine-making — the best line editor, conceptual editor, packager and display writer (and author of one of my all-time favorite heds: “Two Grown Men Live Here,” about the home of our own Nick Haramis). Jared is finishing up a couple of gigs now and then taking some time off — he won’t be joining us until July 11. When he does, he’ll be top editing, working with all the text editors (on both print and, especially, digital), helping to conceive of special issues, improving text and processes and managing. Along with being a superlative editor, he is also a deeply decent and fair person, who will lift T both literarily and culturally.
The second announcement is that Kurt Soller has been promoted to deputy editor. In issue after issue, Kurt has enthusiastically edited a wide variety (not to mention a great number) of articles from a wide variety of writers, many of whom he’s either brought in or cultivated over the years. He has championed diversity in both subject and in writers, and I’ve watched him mentor, cheerlead and instruct them in sometimes multiple rounds of edits. He has taken two passions — food and theater — and made them his (and T’s) own, and also regularly oversees the majority of stories in both our biannual Design issues as well as our Culture issue. Kurt will be running the Greats issue from here on out — helping to organize it and making sure we all stay on track, editorially — and will be overseeing celebrity wrangling, which means he’ll be coordinating our outreach efforts and helping any editor who wants to learn how to do it. He’ll also be overseeing selected digital project.
Please join me in congratulating Kurt and welcoming Jared.
