Michael Klingensmith Could be Named Time Inc. CEO This Week

Time Warner’s search for the next Time Inc. CEO (might!) end this week. Michael Klingensmith — the current CEO of the Star Tribune Media Company — emerged as the frontrunner early this month, and the New York Post reports that he’s expected to nail it down, unless talks suddenly go haywire.

If a deal with Klingensmith isn’t sealed, the rumor is one of three Time Inc. insiders will be named CEO. That lucky (or unlucky, depending on how you look at it) list includesDavid GeithnerHoward Averill, and Todd Larsen.

Meanwhile, Laura Lang, the current Time Inc. CEO, is sitting back in her office like, “Good luck with alllll that.”
