Wired senior editor Richard Dorment has been hired as editor in chief of Men’s Health.
He had been with Wired since June 2016.
Kara Bloomgarden-Smoke of WWD reports, “This is a return to Hearst, which acquired Men’s Health from Rodale in January, for Dorment. Prior to his two-year stint at Wired, Dorment was a senior editor at Esquire under longtime editor in chief David Granger.
“‘It’s great to be back at Hearst, and I’m thrilled to be joining Men’s Health at such a critical time for men across America,’ Dorment said. ‘The old rule books about fitness, wellness and success have been torn up, and we’re writing our own rules as we strive to become stronger, faster, better versions of ourselves — better partners, better parents, better friends and better men.’
“Dorment assumes the position that has been held on an interim basis by David Zinczenko, who has been serving as interim editorial director of the title since January, when editor in chief Matt Bean left following Hearst’s acquisition of Rodale.”
