Just minutes after news broke that Media Source Inc. had acquired Library Journal and School Library Journal, Publishers Weekly has announced two big changes.
Library Journal (LJ), School Library Journal (SLJ), and Publishers Weekly (PW) were all part of the Reed Business Information empire. In addition to editing LJ and SLJ, Brian Kenney was editorial director of PW. He will lead LJ and SLJ under its new ownership. Also leaving with Kenney is Ron Shank, who used to serve as group publisher of Reed’s publishing division. He will now serve as publisher at LJ and SLJ.
Reed’s Business Media president Jeff DeBalko wrote about the new editorial directors: “Jim’s work is widely read and respected by publishing industry executives and newsmakers, while Michael holds the reins of PW’s day-to-day operation, guiding features, composition, and coordinating the delivery of content to print and online outlets. Jim has been at PW for 20 years, and Michael has been with us for 22 years.”
