Longtime columnist and blogger at New York Magazine Andrew Sullivan is retiring, reports CNN Business.
“This will be my last week at New York Magazine. I’m sad because the editors I worked with there are among the finest in the country, and I am immensely grateful to them for vastly improving my work. I’m also proud of the essays and columns I wrote at NYM – some of which will be published in a collection of my writing scheduled for next year.”
Editor-in-chief David Haskell confirmed Sullivan’s resignation in a memo to staff.
“Andrew and I agreed that his editorial project and the magazine’s, though overlapping in many ways, were no longer the right match for each other,” Haskell said.
Apart from the New York Magazine, Sullivan has served as editor of The New Republic. He also founded The Daily Dish, an influential political blog that was published by a number of outlets including Time and The Atlantic before going independent.
Sullivan’s resignation came on the same day that Bari Weiss, opinion columnist for the New York Times, announced her departure.
