Judith Rosen Promoted to Bookselling Editor at Publishers Weekly

1948-v1-150x.JPGPublishers Weekly has promoted New England correspondent Judith Rosen to bookselling editor. In September, Rosen will begin to cover the rapidly changing world of bookselling in addition to her New England coverage.

She will report to co-editorial director Jim Milliot. Rosen has written for the industry magazine since 1998. Her publishing career began at MIT Press and Beacon Press, but she has also worked at Harvard Book Store and WordsWorth Books.

Publishers Weekly owner George Slowik had this statement: “What is great about her approach to the topic is it will include all aspects of bookselling unconfined by type of store or even walls for that matter. Books make their way into the hands of readers in many unconventional manners and we intend to explore and illuminate those paths.”

Newly Formed Company Buys Publishers Weekly

pwpic.pngPWxyz, LLC has purchased Publishers Weekly, the publishersweekly.com site, and Publishers Weekly Show Daily. The company is helmed by former PW publisher George Slowik.

Here’s more from the site, including some reassuring news about staffing: “The new company will retain all of PW’s editorial, art, and advertising employees and the magazine will remain headquartered in New York City. Cevin Bryerman will stay as publisher with Jim Milliot and Michael Coffey serving as co-editors. Slowik ran PW in the late 1980s and early 1990s, leading the publication to record profits despite a poor economy.”

In addition, Reed Business Information CEO John Poulin had this comment: “Given George’s history with Publishers Weekly, we believe this will be a great match.” (Via Sarah Weinman)
