Bill Kristol is stepping down as editor-in-chief at The Weekly Standard after 21 years at the helm and taking over as editor-at-large.

He announced the move Monday on the website.

"It's good," Kristol told CNNMoney. "Here at The Weekly Standard, we've always been for regime change."

Kristol, an ardent critic of Donald Trump who tried to find an independent candidate to defeat the president-elect in the 2016 election, founded the magazine in 1995 along with Fred Barnes. The publication is well known for its neoconservative views and most articles are compiled by writers associated with conservative think tanks in Washington.

"When we started the magazine in 1995, we hoped we'd last a while," Kristol, the chief of staff for Vice President Dan Quayle, wrote on the website. "It's gratifying that we're still going strong a generation later, and I appreciate more than I can say the efforts of all those who've made this possible."

Stephen Hayes, the Weekly Standard's senior writer, was named as Kristol's replacement.

"Readers should expect that we will provide the same independent conservative voice that we brought to the 2016 campaign and that has served the magazine so well since its founding in 1995," Hayes told CNNMoney.
