New media paragon Samantha Barry has been hired as Glamour’s eighth and newest editor-in-chief. Barry, who is originally from Ballincollig, County Cork, is the epitome of Ireland’s burgeoning young emigrant work force. She is a regular recipient of Irish America’s Business 100 and Top 50 Power Women awards and has held positions at worldwide leaders in broadcasting and multimedia such as RTÉ, the BBC, and most recently CNN Worldwide, where she was the executive producer for social and emerging media.

Her hire displays the shift that publisher Condé Nast is making for the 79-year-old magazine to focus on the ever-engrossing digital content market. Barry is entirely aware of this as she knows exactly the abilities that got her the job.

Speaking to the New York Times, she said, “At the end of the day, I bring to the table being an expert in content.”

In a statement, Anna Wintour, Condé Nast’s famed artistic director and editor-in-chief of Vogue, expressed agreement with Barry’s confidence: “We realized that Sam would be the perfect editor for a new, more ambitious era of Glamour’s future. We cannot wait to see her vision unfold.” ♦
