Longtime Bon Appétit Editor Barbara Fairchild is leaving the magazine and the Los Angeles-based publication is moving to New York, parent company Condé Nast announced Monday morning.

Fairchild started with the magazine as an editorial assistant 32 years ago and worked her way up the masthead, including being editor in chief for the last decade. According to the announcement, after helping oversee the transition, she will be pursuing other opportunities, "including future projects for Condé Nast."

According to Condé Nast spokeswoman Maurie Perl, when Fairchild was told of the plan to relocate the magazine to New York, "she told us she was not prepared to make a full-time commitment to New York, as she has a lot of family in California."
