Well the soap genre is churning and turning and now one of our dearest compatriots, Soap Opera Digest and Soap Opera Weekly’s famed Editorial Director, Lynn Leahey has chosen to step down and leave the magazines she made a success.
Leahey sent out these comments to all that have known her and worked with her: “I’m writing to let you know that after 27 (!) years I am leaving Soap Opera Digest and Soap Opera Weekly, effective June 1. It has been a wonderful ride, and I loved working with all of you, and the incredible staffs at the magazines. Daytime is an industry filled with committed, passionate, talented people, and I’ll miss being part of it, but I feel now is the right time for me to try something new.
Of course, I’ll still keep up with my shows through Digest and Weekly, which will undoubtedly be better than ever with Stephanie Sloane at the helm, and the magazines’ team of dedicated editors. I thank all of your for your help over the years, and wish you the very best in the future!”
And as Lynn departs, we congratulate hard working SOD Editor, Stephanie Sloane in her new position as Editorial Director!
