Town & Country editor in chief Stephen Drucker has brought on former Vogue columnist and contributing editor William Norwich to cover social and cultural trends as well as to oversee the magazine’s people and parties coverage.
The hire will now doubt act as part of an overall shift in focus set to happen at Town & Country. Drucker has said he hopes to make the magazine a bit more like Tatler, but that these changes will take some time:
You will start to see small changes, but it won’t be an overnight change. But a year from now, it will be a very different magazine.
Before joining Vogue with his “Norwich Notes,” Norwich was the style and entertaining editor of The New York Times Magazine and an editor at large for House & Garden magazine, as well as the “Style Diary” columnist for the New York Observer. He also penned a daily column that appeared in the New York Post and was syndicated to numerous newspapers, including the Palm Beach Daily News. Before that, he wrote a daily “around-the-town” column for the New York Daily News.
