Saveur gets new editor, Adam Sachs, editorial director of the website Tasting Table
The world food magazine Saveur will be getting a new editor, beginning October 6. Adams Sachs, the editorial director of the website Tasting Table, will be taking over the reigns of the magazine from James Oseland, who left to lead the relaunch of Organic Gardener at Rodale.
As TNM readers know, Bonnier’s Saveur has been a bit of a punching bag around here, an example of a magazine will all the things necessary to be a success in digital publishing, but one stubbornly holding on to print and replica editions. With an editor coming over from a food website, now may be the time for Saveur to rethink what the magazine can accomplish online and within its digital editions.
“We had the opportunity to spend time with many excellent candidates during the search,” said David Ritchie, Bonnier’s chief content officer, in the company’s announcement. “Through it all, Adam set himself apart. His passion for food and travel, his award-winning journalism, his vision for the brand, and his hands-on work in a digitally native business was a potent mix that we’re really excited to bring to this team.”
In addition to his work at Tasting Table, Sachs has been a contributing editor at Bon Appétit and Travel + Leisure.
