Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter will leave his position at the end of the year after more than two decades leading the magazine, The New York Times reports.

"I've loved every moment of my time here, and I've pretty much accomplished everything I've ever wanted to do," Carter said in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm now eager to try out this 'third act' thing that my contemporaries have been telling me about, and I figure I'd better get a jump on it."

He told the Times, "I want to leave while the magazine is on top," in an interview on Wednesday. "I want to leave while it's in vibrant shape, both in the digital realm and the print realm. And I wanted to have a third act — and I thought, time is precious."

Although the magazine's publisher, Condé Nast, is experiencing difficulty with the decline of print, Vanity Fair remains one of its most high-profile and profitable magazines.

Carter said of his position: "Editors, you know, we don't really do anything. To the owner, you're sort of like a patch of mold on the kitchen ceiling. You're not quite sure about it, but as long as it doesn't start dripping, you can just let it be."

He added that he has "the rough architecture" of his future plans, but that he's "not a big announcer . . . best to fail quietly at the beginning of something rather than make grand pronouncements."
