Laura Lang Has Talk Rescheduled

Time Inc.’s CEO Laura Lang was supposed to speak at the Paley Center Thursday, but as WWD reports, she pulled out the day before the news broke that Meredith would be buying most of Time Inc.’s brands.

A Time spokesperson said Lang was “called out of town” tomorrow and would need to reschedule.

Is that the truth? Let’s see what happens after the deal is done.
