Time Continues Search for Publisher

Time hasn’t had a publisher in place since early July, when Kim Kelleher left the magazine for Say Media. Though the search for a replacement continues, Adweek reports that a few names keep popping up:

Adweek says that Picard is a “strong inside contender,” so consider her in the lead.
However, remember that these kinds of searches happen a lot, and rarely does anyone figure out the eventual person beforehand. These three are great, but if we had to bet on it, none of them will be the new publisher of Time.

Time Inc. Promotes, Creates New Groups

Big moves at Time Inc. today. Romenesko is reporting that the company promoted Mark Ford to Executive Vice President and President of the new Sports Group, and John Q. Griffin to Executive Vice President and President of the just created News Group. Additionally, Kim Kelleher is now Time magazine’s Publisher, and Frank Wall is Publisher of Sports Illustrated. Both Ford and Griffin will report directly to Time Inc. CEO Jack Griffin.

Ford will be overseeing new product initiatives, SI.com and other online ventures, while John Griffin will be in charge of Time, Fortune, their respective websites and their international editions.

The new positions all become effective January 3rd, but we don’t expect that to keep their kids from asking for bigger holiday presents.
