Below is the list of Leaders at Hearst Publishing

Harper’s Bazaar's Editor in Chief
Named editor-in-chief of the title in July 2020, Nasr became the first-ever woman of colour to hold the position at the magazine in its 154-year run. Today, the editor believes that innovation and intention are at the core of her work.

ELLE's Editor-in-Chief

Nina Garcia is the editor-in-chief of ELLE. She is the first Latina to lead a major American fashion title, and since she took the helm in September 2017, the brand’s footprint has never been larger. Nina oversaw a dynamic redesign that complements the magazine’s thought-provoking features and showcases fashion in the context of culture, winning Adweek’s Hottest Fashion Magazine in 2019. Her covers have made news well beyond the newsstand. In 2021, she was the recipient of the Media Award in Honor of Eugenia Sheppard from the CFDA. Nina is a graduate of Boston University and FIT.

She lives in Manhattan with her scruffy dog George.


Editor at Large at Oprah Daily

Gayle King is the Editor at Large at Oprah Daily and co-host of CBS Mornings. When she's not on air, Gayle is diving into all things news, trending topics, and pop culture. Yet, her favorite job is being the mom to her favorite daughter, Kirby, favorite son, Will, and grandmother, or as she prefers it, Gaia to her favorite grandson Luca.


Car and Driver's Editor-in-Chief

Tony Quiroga is an 18-year-veteran Car and Driver editor, writer, and car reviewer and the 19th editor-in-chief for the magazine since its founding in 1955. He has subscribed to Car and Driver since age six. "Growing up, I read every issue of Car and Driver cover to cover, sometimes three or more times. It's the place I wanted to work since I could read," Quiroga says. He moved from Automobile Magazine to an associate editor position at Car and Driver in 2004. Over the years, he has held nearly every editorial position in print and digital, edited several special issues, and also helped produce C/D's early YouTube efforts. He is also the longest-tenured test driver for Lightning Lap, having lapped Virginia International Raceway's Grand Course more than 2000 times over 12 years.


Popular Mechanics' Editorial Director

Bill Strickland is also the Rider-in-Chief of Bicycling. His equal passions for cycling and writing have led to the books Ten Points: A Memoir; Tour de Lance: The Extraordinary Story of Cycling’s Most Controversial Champion; Mountain Biking: The Ultimate Guide to the Ultimate Ride; and The Quotable Cyclist. His Bicycling story, “100 Pedal Strokes” won a National Magazine Award for Interactive Feature in 2008.

Joanna Saltz is the current Editorial Director of Delish and House Beautiful, where she oversees all food and home content for both brands. From North Caldwell, NJ, Saltz has held editorial positions at Food Network Magazine, Seventeen, and The Knot.

Men's Health's Editor In Chief

He lives in New York with his wife and three children, and he does not have six-pack abs.
