Michael Wolff’s Time at Adweek Might Be Up

How did we not see this coming? Keith Kelly and Claire Atkinson at the New York Post are reporting that Prometheus Global Media, parent of Adweek, is looking to replace our old pal and editorial director Michael Wolff because there seem to be some creative differences regarding Adweek’s direction. Sources tell the Post that “Jimmy Finkelstein, who hired Wolff to overhaul Adweek after several candidates turned him down, now thinks Wolff is a controversial highbrow who has alienated old-line Madison Avenue types.”

Wolff, though, seems surprised by the whole situation, telling Gawker, “I hope I don’t get fired. And nobody, except the New York Post, has yet told me I’m about to be.” If the situation does indeed turn out for the worst, at least we’ll always have the above and the bazillion Rupert Murdoch-related stories posted that have been posted on Adweek since the relaunch.
