Hugo Lindgren is out as editor of The New York Times Magazine, Capital New York reports.

There's no word yet on who will succeed him.

Lindgren, a former deputy of Adam Moss at New York magazine, shook up the Times' publication with several personnel changes, jettisoning longtime Ethicist Randy Cohen in favor of Ariel Kaminer, then Chuck Klosterman. Capital New York, which has bulked up its media reporting team following its acquisition by Politico publisher Robert Albritton, says rumors of Lindgren's departure increased in recent months.
