Jacob Ward Promoted to EIC of Popular Science

Jacob Ward has been promoted from West Coast Bureau Chief to Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. Ward had been the bureau chief since 2010, but has been with the magazine since 2006. Ward succeeds Editorial Director Mark Jannot, who joined RDA Milwaukee, a subdivision of Readers’ Digest Association.

“Jake Ward is the perfect choice to lead Popular Science into the future,” said Bonnier Technology Group Vice President and Group Publisher, Steven Grune. “During his time with the magazine, he has elevated the brand’s stature in the consumer and advertising marketplace, and he embodies the technology savvy qualities that our audience values. Jake is ‘The Future Now’ and will successfully move the brand into the next generation.”

Ward will now split his time between the New York and San Francisco offices of Popular Science.
