Gus Wenner Continues His Climb at Wenner Media

Rolling Stone logo GJann Wenner — founder of Wenner Media — likes what he sees in his son, Gus Wenner. One year after Gus was named rollingstone.com’s editor, he has been promoted once again — this time to head of digital. The younger Wenner will now oversee the sites for Rolling Stone as well as Us Weekly and Men’s Journal.

With the promotion, every other Wenner Media exec has officially had their dreams of climbing to the top of the company crushed. There is no stopping the 23-year-old Gus from taking over the company. It’s happening. Probably sooner rather than later. As Jann already said, “It’s a path open to him if he wants it.”

In other words, the only way Gus doesn’t become head honcho of Wenner Media is if he somehow decides he’d rather do something else. Perhaps that’s where the hope lies for Wenner Media execs. They could try to get Gus interested in something new — like archery! That could be fun! And Jann would probably buy Gus his first set (quiver?), which would make the transition easier. Good luck to you all.
