Stephen Drucker Out as Town & Country Editor


Wednesday, January 19, 2011


Stephen Drucker, who became Town & Country editor-in-chief with much fanfare in April 2010, is leaving the magazine, effective at the end of February. His successor, announced by Hearst Magazines president (since June 2010) David Carey, is Jay Fielden, the 2005-2009 Men's Vogue editor-in-chief and a colleague of Carey's when both were at The New Yorker in the late-1990s.

Drucker had a successful four-and-a-half-year stint as House Beautiful editor-in-chief when he was selected by then-Hearst Magazines president Cathie Black to succeed Pamela Fiori at T&C. Fiori had served for nearly 17 years (she remains editor-at-large) and was considered iconic.  Drucker's brief tenure is quite a contrast, and while Carey's statement lauded Drucker's work at HB, his bringing "fresh ideas" was the only acknowledgment of his time at T&C.

min is told that Drucker is leaving T&C and Hearst on good terms, and he hosted a reception this afternoon (Jan. 19) to toast Fielden.

Fielden becomes Carey's first major Hearst hire.
