week.pngFelix Dennis‘s The Week has announced that it has hired former HuffPo blog editor, and National Magazine award winner Francis Wilkinson as its new top editor. In this role he will serve as deputy to editor in chief William Falk assisting with the editing of the magazine and will be responsible for “expanding and bringing more original content to theweek.com,” which was acquired earlier this month.

In other good(!) news the WSJ is also reporting that The Week is raising its rate base by 25,000 readers to 500,000, this is its third since January. Wow. Maybe Dennis should be teaching a class.
