New Assistant Managing Editor at Time

Time magazine managing editor Rick Stengel just announced the addition of Tom Weber as an assistant managing editor. He will be responsible for features, both in print and online, as well as helping to shape the magazine’s digital strategy.

Weber has served as editor of SmartMoney.com, and managing editor at Newsweek/Daily Beast.

Stengel wrote in a staff announcement:

An elegant story teller and incisive editor, Tom has honed his skill working with young writers as a Ferris Professor of Journalism at Princeton, where he serves as a trustee of The Daily Princetonian. He will continue to do that here. As we refine and redefine what matters most in the stories we feature, we welcome Tom as a great new asset in helping us strengthen TIME across all its platforms.
