Radhika Jones, the New York Times books editor, is set to succeed Graydon Carter.

Radhika Jones may be named the new editor of Vanity Fair, The New York Times reported Saturday, citing two unnamed sources. 

Jones, the Times books editor, will succeed longtime editor Graydon Carter. 

While Jones is a fixture in the New York literary world, she is unknown in Hollywood, which has traditionally been a key stomping ground for Vanity Fair.

Still, Jones is familiar with the entertainment industry from her tenure working on arts coverage at Time magazine, where she was introduced to many of Hollywood's top execs.

Condé Nast, which publishes Vanity Fair, declined to comment to the Times, but the newspaper reported the announcement may happen as soon as Monday.

Jones previously was deputy managing editor at Time. While there, she oversaw the Time 100 issue.

Carter announced in September that he was stepping down after a 25-year run at Vanity Fair
