Biography

Gibbs took on leadership of TIME in September 2013. Over the past four years, TIME's relevance in print has grown as its digital audience expanded through a combination of award-winning journalism and photography and a higher volume of digital and video content.
Gibbs established a new reporting structure to merge the print and digital newsrooms into one, and she enhanced collaboration between the brand's business and editorial sides, as well as with other Time Inc. titles. She is the first woman to lead TIME.
As Editor-in-Chief, Gibbs directed TIME's coverage of the most recent US presidential election and the Trump presidency, which included newsmaking interviews with the candidates and with Donald Trump after he took office, as well as some of the most iconic covers of the print magazine in recent history.
During her tenure at TIME, Gibbs has interviewed five US presidents: Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush and Jimmy Carter. She is the co-author, along with TIME's Michael Duffy, of two best-selling presidential histories: The President's Club: Inside the World's Most Exclusive Fraternity (2012) and The Preacher and the Presidents: Billy Graham in the White House (2007).
Gibbs also interviewed world leaders such as Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Narendra Modi, Shinzo Abe, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama, as well as leading business and cultural figures, including Tim Cook, J.K. Rowling, and Sheryl Sandberg. She has written more cover stories for TIME than any other writer in its history (more than 175), and she won the National Magazine Award for her cover story of TIME's black-bordered September 11, 2001, special issue.
As Editor-in-Chief, Gibbs also transformed TIME's storytelling with ambitious reporting and special projects that extended across many platforms. Highlights include the yearlong video series A Year in Space, which was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in 2016 and adapted into a series on PBS nominated for a 2017 News & Documentary Emmy; an interactive multimedia exploration of the 100 most influential photographs of all time; and just recently, FIRSTS, a multimedia project highlighting 46 women who broke barriers across fields. FIRSTS includes an interactive site, short films, interviews, portraits, a social media campaign and, later this month, a hardcover book.
Gibbs was a recipient of a 2016 Matrix Award from New York Women in Communications.
The Newswomen's Club of New York honored her in 2015 with the Front Page Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Gibbs came to TIME as a factchecker in 1985. She rose in the ranks to become a lead writer, essayist and writer before taking on senior management roles.
Gibbs was born and raised in New York City. She graduated from Yale summa cum laude, with honors in history, and has a degree in politics and philosophy from Oxford, where she was a Marshall scholar.
