Replacing Ms. Sanders at Gourmet will be GQ's associate publisher, Giulio Capua. Mr. Capua's replacement was not immediately named.
Teen Vogue is the latest entry into the teen-girl niche, which was long dominated by Teen, YM and Seventeen but saw an explosion of new entrants tied to existing magazines brands that began when Time Inc.'s Teen People launched 1997.
Hearst Magazines' CosmoGirl launched in 1999 and now publishes 10 issues a year. Hachette Fillipacchi Magazines' Elle Girl, launched last year, will increase frequency to publish six issues in 2003.
