Tina Brown Taps Two Former Time Staffers To Oversee Newsweek

As the Newsweek/Daily Beast deal awaits finalization, Tina Brown is not slowing down the hiring process.  The New York Post reports that Brown has turned to Steve Koepp and Arthur Hochstein to manage Newsweek while the merger is completed.  Koepp has previously served as an editor at Time magazine and Hochstein was Time’s art director as well as an interim creative director at Bloomberg’s Businessweek.

Some Mag Apps For iPad|Time‘s Hochstein To BusinessWeek|Passport Increases Frequency|Times Reporter Denied Access To Real Estate Gala|Sony Sues TV Guide Channel

min: Although Steve Jobs didn’t mention any magazine apps today during his iPad introduction, here are five magazine apps that would look pretty good on the new device.

New York Post: Another Time Inc. defection to Bloomberg BusinessWeek: Time magazine’s art director Arthur Hochstein has joined former Time.com managing editor Josh Tyrangiel at the business magazine. BusinessWeek‘s former art director Andrew Horton departed last week.

Audience Development: Passport, the “hetero-friendly gay travel magazine,” is increasing its frequency and upping video coverage on its Web site.

The Observer: New York Times real estate reporter Christine Haughney won’t be attending this year‘s Real Estate Board of New York’s annual gala, and her negative coverage of last year’s event may be to blame.

Reuters: Sony is suing the TV Guide Channel over its use of Michael Jackson works aired during coverage of the singer’s death last year.

Time Names New Design Director

dwtime1.jpgOn New Year’s Eve day, Time magazine announced the promotion of D.W. Pine to the position of design director of the weekly magazine.

Pine will be replacing longtime art director Arthur Hochstein, who Pine had worked under as a deputy for nine years. In a memo to the staff, managing editor Richard Stengel praised Pine for his work for the magazine, including designing more than 30 covers, working as art director for the special Michael Jackson issue this summer and overseeing Time‘s “efforts on the new tablet digital platform.”

Pine, a former sportswriter, joined Time from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, where he was features design director, Stengel said.

“As a designer, he is always seeing around corners–and he gets more done in a day than anyone I know,” Stengel added. “D.W.’s work has a strong, clean, and spare esthetic and he has one of the great all-time Time temperaments: he’s never ruffled. He seems to come by this disposition naturally; his parents were subscribers who used to keep Time covers in a 3-ring binder.”

Hochstein, who Pine is replacing, was named art director in 1994 and had served under seven managing editors during his long career at Time. He is retiring but will continue to work for the magazine as a contributing designer.
