More Newsweek Exits And Non-Entrances

Sister blog FishbowlNY reports that four more employees have left Newsweek:

Deputy editor Julia Baird, global business editor Kathleen Deveny, staff writer Nancy Cook (who will now be working for Fast Company), and Washington bureau staff writer Suzanne Smalley (to The Atlantic).

And more bad news (for Newsweek anyway): Terry McDonnell, editor of Sports Illustrated, was in the running to go join Newsweek as top editor but he told Keith Kelly “I have no plan to leave Sports Illustrated.”

The Newsweek/Daily Beast deal is off, too, so that leaves the top editor position still a mystery. Kelly reports that owner Sidney Harman has talked to more than a dozen candidates and is confident he’ll have someone in the slot by mid-November.
