Esquire editor resigns

Posted online

Jay Fielden, editor-in-chief of men's magazine Esquire, announced he's leaving his post at the publication owned by Hearst Magazines.

"In the decade that Hearst Magazines has been my creative home, I've also collaborated with some of the best writers, photographers, designers and fellow editors in the business, and it's been a genuine privilege for which I’m deeply grateful," he said via Instagram. "I have, however, felt the lure of new possibilities — all the more so now, as the means of production for a new media venture is basically my laptop (which also has the first few chapters of a book on it).

Fielden started as editor-in-chief in 2016, following the 19-year tenure of David Granger, who reportedly was forced to step down.
