Bill Shapiro Dials Back at Time Inc.

Bill Shapiro is changing roles at Time Inc., cutting back from development editor to editor-at-large, digital, so he can concentrate on his new spot at the e-book site, Zola Books.

Shapiro has been with Time since 2000, and he served as the managing editor of Life and Life.com when it was changed to its all digital format. Shapiro had been Time Inc.’s development editor since 2007.

The New York Post is reporting that Shapiro will be director of innovation and strategy for Zola Books. The company was co-founded by Joe Regal and Michael Strong.
