Jack Griffin Out at MPA

The hits just keep coming for former Time Inc. CEO Jack Griffin: Amy Wicks at WWD is reporting that he’s also been forced out of his position as Chairman at The Association of Magazine Media (MPA).

A Spokesperson for MPA told Wicks:

To be a member of the MPA Board of Directors, one must be a senior executive who holds the primary responsibility for the magazine operations of an MPA-member company. We can speak more definitively about a replacement for Jack Griffin soon.

Our alternate headline for this post was “Everybody Hates Jack Griffin,” but we’re thinking of just making that a category since we might have to keep using it.
