Condé Nast Publications recently named Keija Minor editor-in-chief of Brides magazine, making her their first ever African-American EIC.  Brides magazine is just one of 18 magazines, including Glamour, GQ, and Vogue, Condé Nast Publications produces.

Minor takes over the reins at ‘Brides’ from Anne Felenwider, who left earlier this year to pursue a position as editor-in-chief of Marie Claire. Tom Wallace, Condé Nast’s editorial director told Media Bistro:

Keija’s contribution to Brides over the past several months has been invaluable and will enable her to step seamlessly into the role of editor-in-chief.  She is a gifted editor. Brides will benefit from both her energy and her passion.

In its 103-year existence, Minor is the first person of color appointed to the position of editor-in-chief of the privately-owned company.
