Susanna Homan | Rich Hein~Sun-Times

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.
