Adam Moss

Editor in Chief

New York

Adam Moss was named editor in chief of New York magazine in March 2004. During his tenure, he has overseen an ambitious digital expansion, with the magazine and digital properties widely recognized for editorial excellence. During Moss’s tenure, New York and nymag.com have won 34 National Magazine Awards.  

In his first year at New York, Moss completed an extensive renovation of the now 48-year-old magazine, launching new columns, ushering in new writers and photographers and increasing political and business coverage. He later reimagined the print magazine as it moved to biweekly frequency, adding features and columns and an increased emphasis on photography and visual storytelling.  

In 2006, Moss oversaw a year-long relaunch of the magazine’s website transforming it into an up-to-the minute news and information site. He directed and expanded the development of Vulture, Grub Street, The Cut and Science of Us. Monthly unique users at the sites have grown to over 24 million per month.

Before joining New York, Moss was the editor of the New York Times Magazine, as well as assistant managing editor of the paper.  He has also served as founding editor of 7 days, a New York weekly magazine. Before that, he worked at Esquire and Rolling Stone.
