Execs Leave Condé and Rodale for Say Media

Say Media has hired two execs from Condé Nast and Rodale. Kate Lewis has been named senior vice president, editorial director and Tim Koorbusch will serve as vice president of U.S. sales.

Lewis comes to Say Media from Condé Nast, where she served as senior executive director of human resources. Prior to that Lewis was managing editor of Self. At Say Media, Lewis will guide the editorial direction of the company’s many sites, including xojane.com and gdgt.com.

Koorbusch was most recently associate publisher of Men’s Health. Prior to that he was advertising director for The Week.

“Both Kate and Tim have unparalleled experience,” said Kim Kelleher, president of Say Media, in a statement. ”Kate has managed some of the most renowned editorial brands and Tim has a proven track record leading successful sales teams across print and digital. These strong additions to our leadership team will undoubtedly make huge contributions in the next phase of our aggressive growth.”

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.

Candidates to Replace Time’s Kim Kelleher Emerge

Now that Kim Kelleher, Time’s publisher, has announced that she’s leaving for a spot at Say Media, the search to replace her has begun. Though Time has had a rough go this year, with ad pages dipping 20 percent compared to 2011, whoever takes on the role will have big shoes to fill.

Below, a list of rumored candidates to become Time’s new publisher, via The New York Post. Kelleher leaves Time in September.

  • Brendan Ripp — Former Time publisher who was shifted to Money when Kelleher came aboard.
  • Frank Wall — Publisher of Sports Illustrated.
  • Jed Hartman — Worldwide publisher of Fortune, also oversees CNNMoney.
  • Michelle eBanks — President of Essence Communications

Time Publisher Kim Kelleher Leaves for Say Media

Kim Kelleher, worldwide publisher of Time and Ad Age’s Publisher of The Year in 2011, is leaving the magazine to become president of Say Media, a San Francisco based blog network that includes sites such as XOJane and ReadWriteWeb.

Ad Age reports that Kelleher said she enjoyed her time at the magazine but the chance to join Say Media was too good to pass up.

Matt Sanchez, Say Media’s CEO, said Kelleher was perfect for the job because she understands the “intersection of Madison Avenue and Silicon Valley.”

Time to Relaunch Time Style & Design

Time is relaunching Time Style & Design, a fashion title that was folded in 2009. The new version will be different than the old in that it will cover a wider range of topics. It will also have a smaller circulation and its own digital channel on Time.com.

“It’ll have a kind of broader palate,” Time’s Managing Editor Richard Stengel told Adweek. “There will be stories about art and architecture and design and technology, and that sort of thing. The previous iteration of it was probably more focused on fashion than this one will be. In that sense, this represents the kinds of things I’m more interested in, the things I think the Time reader is more interested in.”

Time’s Worldwide Publisher, Kim Kelleher, said the new Time Style & Design will benefit this time around from being more of a spinoff from Time, rather than a completely separate entity like the old one was perceived to be by advertisers.

See? We told you magazines were making a comeback.

Glamour Seeking New Publisher

According to Adweek, Glamour is on the lookout for someone to take the Publisher reins from Bill Wackermann. As Publishing Director for Condé Nast Wackermann’s duties have been piling up, and the company is hoping to find someone who can take over Glamour and dedicate more time to it.

Just who might fill the role? Adweek has some ideas:

If it looks inside its ranks, it might tap Carolyn Kremins, the ambitious publisher of Brides, who’s been recognized for the title’s strong performance. If Condé goes outside to fill the position, it could try to poach Nancy Berger Cardone, a Condé Nast alum with strong fashion chops who’s now publisher of Hearst’s Marie Claire (and whose hire could be a poke in the eye of the rival Hearst).

Other potential outside candidates could include Connie Anne Phillips, a Condé vet who as publisher of Time Inc.’s InStyle has made it a formidable competitor to Vogue, and Kim Kelleher, a onetime rising star at Condé who is now worldwide publisher of Time magazine.

As you can see, none of the FishbowlNY Editors were on the list, but maybe that’s because we’re almost too fabulous for the job. At least that’s what we’re going to believe.

Time Undergoes A Redesign

While Tina Brown has been showing off Newsweek 2.0, Time magazine managing editor Rick Stengel and executive editor Nancy Gibbs have made some changes of their own.  While the body of each issue will stay untouched, the Briefing section will now feature shorter news stories and contain a two-page spread for the best image of the week.  The “Washington” section has been redubbed to “Nation” and now extends beyond D.C.  Overseeing the first redesign in three years, Time publisher Kim Kelleher is confident that first quarter ad pages will increase over 2010’s results.

Michael Safran Named Associate Publisher Sales for Time

Kim Kelleher, Vice President, Publisher, for Time, has just announced that Michael Safran will be the magazine’s new Associate Publisher Sales. Safran comes to Time from Sports Illustrated, where he’s been for the past 12 years, most recently working as their National Sales Director.

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.
