Susanna Homan, the publisher and editor of Chicago’s celebrity weekly publication Splash, is leaving her post to take the helm at Chicago Magazine.
No other changes were expected at Splash, a spokesman with the magazine said.
Homan said she is set to start her new job as editor-in-chief and publisher at Chicago Magazine on Monday.
“Chicago Magazine has a long history of award-winning journalism and I have a tremendous amount of respect for the brand. I look forward to contributing to its growth as the region’s must-read publication, and continuing to establish a deep emotional connection with the audiences we serve,” Homan said in an emailed statement to the Sun-Times.
Splash, which bills itself as a magazine offering “Chicago’s dose of style, society and celebrity,” was unveiled in May 2012.
At the time, Michael Ferro Jr., then-chairman of Sun-Times Media owner Wrapports LLC, said he hoped Splash would give the Sun-Times brand a fresh, colorful feel.
