Former Esquire Editor-in-Chief David Granger has been named to the Magazine Hall of Fame by the American Society of Magazine Editors.
Granger, who ran Esquire from June 1997 to March 2016, had accumulated a basketful of awards in his 20-year run at Esquire, winning 17 National Magazine Awards, including General Excellence in 2006. He was named Editor of the Year by Ad Age in 2004 and 2013, and by Adweek in 2010.
He was to be officially inducted on March 12 as part of the National Magazine Awards ceremony that was scheduled for Brooklyn Steel music venue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. But ASME decided to postpone the ceremony in light of growing concerns about the coronavirus.
Sid Holt, executive director of ASME, said no new date has been set but hopes it can be rescheduled sometime in May.
