The news was expected to be announced at a staff meeting for T employees at 11:30 this morning, where members of the magazine were crowded into a sixth-floor conference room.

Mr. Tonchi will begin as editor in chief of W on April 12, said Maurie Perl, a Condé Nast spokeswoman. She said she did not yet know whether Mr. Tonchi would be taking other T editors and writers with him to W. “It’s very exciting,” she said. “He’s returning to us.”

Mr. Tonchi joined The New York Times as style editor for the company’s magazine in 2003. He had previously been a fashion and creative director at magazines including Esquire, and the Condé Nast publications Self and L’Uomo Vogue.

“Stefano created a strong franchise for The New York Times and we expect to name a new editor soon to build upon his success,” said Robert Christie, a spokesman for The New York Times, in an e-mail message.

Mr. Tonchi did not immediately return a call for comment.
