The national political reporter, who covered Joe Biden’s campaign in 2019 and 2020 for Axios and is also an NBC and MSNBC contributor, will succeed Lindsay Peoples Wagner at the helm of the US youth-focused digital title on March 24, the publisher announced Friday.

Her appointment signals that Condé Nast continues to value Teen Vogue’s political point of view. The sister publication to the fashion bible embraced national news and social justice coverage in the years leading up to the election of President Donald Trump under former editors Phillip Picardi and Elaine Welteroth. Under Peoples Wagner, the publication focused more on fashion while still featuring politicians like US representative Cori Bush and activists like Greta Thunberg alongside the young musicians, actors and athletes of the moment. Peoples Wagner left the title on Friday to begin her role as editor in chief of New York Magazine’s The Cut.

“[McCammond’s] interest in fashion, wellness and important issues in the lives of the Teen Vogue audience and broad knowledge of business leaders, elected officials, influencers, photographers and filmmakers is unrivaled,” said Anna Wintour, Condé Nast’s chief content officer and the editor in chief of American Vogue, in a statement.

McCammond, 27, joined Axios in 2017. Before that, she was a news editor at Bustle and a freelance reporter for Cosmopolitan. In 2019, she was named the emerging journalist of the year by the National Association of Black Journalists.

“I’m looking forward to working with the team to build a unique community of ambitious, curious and fashion-forward young leaders and help lift their voices so they can become our next great leaders, thinkers and artists,” she said in a statement.
