Garabino’s Detour

N.Y. Post alum to edit L.A. fashion-celebrity mag

Steve Garbarino, a former editor at the New York Post, has been named editor in chief of Los Angeles-based Detour magazine.

Garbarino will move to L.A. to succeed Jim Turner, who founded Detour 11 years ago. Turner will remain with the magazine as art director.

During his tenure at the Post, Garbarino ran the Sunday features desk, launched the weekend Post Plus section and created book and restaurant pages.

Prior to the Post, he was editor of Manhattan File and held posts at Interview, New Orleans Magazine, the St. Petersburg Times, the New Orleans Times-Picayune and the Tampa Tribune. A native of Philadelphia, Garbarino has written for the New Yorker, the New York Observer, Entertainment Weekly, Elle and the Village Voice.

“Steve is known for his original ideas and strong journalistic skills,” said John Evans, president and CEO of Detour. “With his vision and exceptional editorial abilities, we’re certain Detour’s editorial voice will stand apart from other magazines.”

Detour, a glossy compilation of edgy fashion spreads and profiles, was in negotiations earlier this year to purchase the assets of troubled Buzz magazine, whose current issue is its last. Buzz’s subscription list and logo were subsequently sold to Los Angeles magazine for $5.3 million.
