Editor & Publisher Editorial Staff Replaced

News broke today that Duncan McIntosh Co. has eliminated the editorial staff of Editor & Publisher.

McIntosh assumed control of the magazine earlier this year, saving the title from Neilson’s decision to shutter the century-old magazine. Greg Mitchell from The Nation has more details: “Top editor Mark Fitzgerald and tech editor Jim Rosenberg also were axed and the new editor works for owner Duncan McIntosh who took over in January—his  other titles, based in Irving, Ca., are boating and fishing magazines.”

According to Richard Prince, the editors will be replaced by other McIntosh staffers:  “Jeff Fleming has assumed the position of Editor in Chief of the magazine, Kristina Ackermann has taken on the duties of managing editor and Deena Nenad has become associate editor.” (Via Calvin Reid)

Author Greg Mitchell Hired as Media Blogger at The Nation

mitchell_moyers.jpgFormer Editor & Publisher editor and author Greg Mitchell has joined The Nation, launching a new blog about media and politics in April–Media Fix.

According to the release, Mitchell will be blogging “not 24/7, but often 16/6.” He has already started a Twitter feed for the blog. Mitchell has written nine books, including So Wrong for So Long: How the Press, the Pundits and the President Failed on Iraq, and Why Obama Won.

The Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel had this statement: “Greg was a great editor at Editor and Publisher, where he challenged the mainstream media, pundits and the President in the run-up to the war in Iraq … For decades he has kept a keen eye on what’s right, what’s wrong and what’s missing from the media. We’re thrilled to have Greg, and we’re excited to launch Media Fix – our first blog at TheNation.com dedicated to the intersection of politics and media.”
