Roth Returns To Fortune To Lead Web Site

Daniel_Roth.jpgFortune magazine has tapped veteran business reporter, and former Fortune staffer, Daniel Roth to lead its Web site through an upcoming revamp, in the newly created position of managing editor of Fortune.com.

In a memo to staff today, Fortune managing editor Andy Serwer explained that Roth would be heading up the magazine’s plan to “reinvent Fortune.com within the framework of its home on CNNMoney.com,” as part of “the reformulation of the whole Fortune franchise,” which has been talked about for some time.

Roth left the Time Inc. pub in 2006 to joined the now-defunct Portfolio at Condé Nast. He is currently working as a senior writer at Wired, which he joined in 2007.

An Inside Look At Time Inc.’s Assignment Detroit

Earlier this week, we got a chance to chat with Steven Gray via Skype. Gray is a Time magazine correspondent based in Time Inc.‘s new Detroit bureau, established earlier this year in a house in the Motor City.

Gray is the only person living full time in the house, but many reporters from across the company come and go to work on stories as part of Assignment Detroit. The project is year-long commitment to living in and reporting from the city, with reports appearing in various Time Inc. publications and Web sites, including Time magazine, Time.com, Fortune, Fortune.com, CNNMoney.com, Sports Illustrated, SI.com, Money and Essence magazine.

Gray gave us some background on the project, talked about what he’s been working on and told us what it’s like to live and work in the house/bureau. In the clip above, he talks about covering Detroit and blogging for Time.com. “Detroit offers one of the few places in the country where I can write about all of the issues that I care about personally, in terms of writing about society and politics and business and the economy,” Gray said. “So why not Detroit?”

Time Inc. Launches Assignment Detroit

TimeAssignmentDetroitLogo.jpgOur colleagues have a story today about Time Inc.‘s newest initiative Assignment Detroit.

According to the company, the project is year-long commitment to living in and reporting from the city of Detroit with reports from the Motor City appearing in various Time Inc. publications and Web sites, including Time magazine, Time.com, Fortune, Fortune.com, CNNMoney.com, Sports Illustrated, SI.com, Money and Essence magazine.

As part of this initiative, Time Inc. purchased a house in Detroit to serve as its headquarters throughout the year-long project. We’ve heard that Steven Gray is currently living in the house full-time while he works as a correspondent for Time and Time.com, and Rick Tetzeli, the executive producer of Assignment Detroit, will be spending a few nights a week there. As the project progresses, various editors and writers will likely stay at the house from time to time.

And speaking of Gray, he has already started posting on Time.com’s “Detroit Blog.” In one of his first posts, Letter from Detroit, he explains a little bit about the new project:

“Our goal here on The Detroit Blog isn’t to rehash clichéd stories about the region’s problems. Some of that’s unavoidable. But we’re more interested in exploring key questions, like: What will it take for Detroit, and the region, to rebound? And who’s developing the ideas that are best positioned to make that turnaround succeed? Let us know what you think. And stay tuned.”

We will.
