Michelle Obama: First Lady and Magazine Editor

MoreFrom CBS News:

Michelle Obama will be adding another job to the portfolio of issues she handles as first lady: she has agreed to serve as the first-ever guest editor for MORE magazine.

The magazine announced Thursday that Obama would have editorial oversight of the July/August issue and grace its cover for the third time.

Guest-editing required first lady to pitch story ideas and write and approve copy, editor-in-chief Lesley Jane Seymour told the Associated Press. She said it allowed Obama to showcase several of the issues that she works on from the White House. That includes the Let’s Move! initiative to curb childhood obesity; Reach Higher, which encourages young people to complete their post-high school education; Joining Forces, which supports service members, veterans and their families; and Let Girls Learn, a more recent project that focuses on worldwide education for girls.
