Co-host of CBS “The Talk,” NYT Bestselling Author, Award-Winning Journalist, Former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue

Elaine Welteroth is a Co-host of CBS “The Talk,” New York Times bestselling author, award-winning journalist, and former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue. She is known for her groundbreaking work at the helm of Teen Vogue, where in 2016 she was appointed the youngest ever Editor-in-Chief at a Conde Nast publication and used her position to prioritize diversity and social justice coverage. She’s now a leading expert and advocate for the next generation of changemakers. In 2020, Elaine was recently appointed Cultural Ambassador for Michelle Obama's When We All Vote initiative and in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, she helped launch the 15 Percent Pledge, a non-profit advocacy organization that recruits major retailers including Sephora and Macy’s to commit at least 15% of their purchasing power to Black-owned businesses. She is the host of a new podcast called Built to Last that amplifies the stories of Black founders, past and present. Her debut book “More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are No Matter What They Say” was an immediate New York Times bestseller and won the 2020 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work. She is currently writing and executive producing the book-to-television adaptation with Anonymous Content and Paramount Studios. Her work appears in The New York Times, British Vogue, Glamour, and The Hollywood Reporter. She has also written for the hit show Grown-ish and has appeared on-camera for a range of media outlets, including ABC News and The View. She lives with her new husband in Los Angeles, California.
