Condé Nast has named Versha Sharma, former managing editor of NowThis, as the new editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, effective on 24th May 2021.

This is Teen Vogue’s second new editor in chief this year, with the role intended to be filled by Alexi McCammond in March, until she resigned shortly after being hired over fallout from past racist and homophobic tweets.

Commenting on Ms Sharma’s appointment, Condé Nast’s global editorial director and chief content officer Anna Wintour said, “Versha is a natural leader with a global perspective and deep understanding of local trends and issues — from politics and activism to culture and fashion — and their importance to our audience.”

“She is a masterful storyteller who can move from platform to platform with ease, and I am excited by her optimistic and expansive vision for Teen Vogue,” she continued.

In a statement, Ms Sharma affirmed, “I’ve long admired the work that Teen Vogue has done, building and fostering a community of young people who want to change the world.”

Looking ahead to her new position, she added, “I believe that Teen Vogue can continue to be a force for good, with a focus on empathy, accountability, optimism and impact, and it is such an honour to join this team and lead the title into the future.”
