More Michael Wolff, Adweek Rumors

The New York Post has some more gossip regarding Michael Wolff and Adweek. Apparently one of the magazine’s investors, Jimmy Finkelstein, is leading the charge to get rid of Wolff, so much so that even Wolff is expecting to be fired soon. Finkelstein is looking to return Adweek to its advertising roots, so word is he’s looking directly at Ad AgeAdweek’s biggest rival — for Wolff’s replacement.

Wolff is still scheduled to speak at a number of events starting on Monday (which, cruelly, is his one year anniversary at Adweek) for Advertising Week, so perhaps he’ll be around for a little bit longer.

There’s also some buzz that Wolff might not be the only one getting the axe. Adweek’s Publisher, Erica Bartman, is getting flak for ad sales dropping after the redesign launched.

Happy Friday everyone?

wwd.pngFairchild Fashion Group CEO Richard Beckman is at it again.

After appointing a new CRO to the group, which publishes trade pub WWD, last week and assigning a new publisher to Footwear News the week before that, Beckman yesterday named three new associate publishers to the women’s wear publication.

Erica Bartman, Paula Fortgang, and Elizabeth Webbe Lunny will all take on roles of associate publishers at WWD starting July 13. All three women join Fairchild from various positions at Conde Nast, which owns the smaller fashion trade publisher. They have all worked with Beckman during his career there, he said.

“Erica, Paula, and Elizabeth are some of the best professionals I have worked with in my time at Conde Nast,” Beckman said in a release about the appointments. “Each will bring great intelligence and intensity to their new positions at Women’s Wear Daily.”
