Jann Wenner Names Gus Wenner Editor of RollingStone.com

Jann Wenner, the owner of Rolling Stone’s publisher, Wenner Media, has a son named Gus Wenner. The former Wenner has named the latter Wenner — all 22 years of him— the new editor of RollingStone.com. Seems fair.

In a memo obtained by Jim Romenesko, Jann wrote that he was “very proud” to make the announcement.

We’re sure the staff at Rolling Stone is excited as well.
