Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter steps down after 25 years

Graydon Carter, the longtime editor of Vanity Fair and a giant of the New York City media scene, said Thursday that he intends to step down from his post at the magazine.

"I want to leave while the magazine is on top", Carter told the Times.

As the head of one of the most recognisable publications in the world, Carter is a titan of journalism.

Late previous year, Vanity Fair's new subscriptions increased 100 fold after a tweet from president Donald Trump targeting the magazine, in which he stated that the magazine had "really poor numbers".

Carter, who succeeded Tina Brown at the magazine, is expected to depart in December. (Vanity Fair, however, has been largely left alone.) This week, yet another round of editorial and business cuts at the company was hinted at in an article in WWD. As a cofounder of Spy, Carter often poked Trump in an attempt to expose him for his idiocy. Carter's decision to leave the magazine came up earlier this year when his contract was expired, but like so many others, the election of his nemesis Donad Trump reinvigorated his desire to stick around. Among the magazine's pranks was to mail checks of smaller and smaller quantities to celebrities and wait to see who was avaricious enough to cash them; Mr. Trump redeemed a check for 13 cents.

While his tenure spanned five presidencies, Carter had a particularly contentious relationship with Donald Trump going back to the 1980s when he edited Spy, a satirical monthly that often described the real estate developer as a "short-fingered vulgarian". "So I blew up all the tweets and I framed them all". The August 1993 issue was famously fronted by a portrait of supermodel Cindy Crawford and k.d. lang, which included an in-depth interview with the Canadian country star about coming out as a lesbian. And Vanity Fair has been tremendously profitable. In a statement, he said he is "eager to try out this "third act" thing".
