Larry Hackett: All is Well at Time Inc.

Larry Hackett, Managing Editor of People, isn’t worried about who will replace Jack Griffin at Time Inc. At least that’s what he told WWD, when the magazine asked him about what life at Time is like in Griffin’s absence:

John [Huey] and Maurice [Edelson] and Howard [Averill] are running things, and it’s been fine. The fact of the matter is, many magazines at Time Inc. run themselves — I mean, we’re in the style and entertainment group run by Martha [Nelson]. We know what we want to do for 2011 and, not that Jack disagreed with that, but we’re continuing with that plan.

Hackett sounds a bit dismissive of the whole situation, but when you’re at the helm of one of Time’s most successful titles, you can say things like that.
