Gawker is reporting that Michael Wolff‘s tenure as editorial director of Adweek may be coming to an end today. Rumors started bubbling up a couple of weeks ago that Wolff and parent company Prometheus Global Media were at odds.
Wolff has only been with the company for less than a year and spearheaded a revamp and relaunch (that included a typo) of the magazine. Our AgencySpy colleague Kiran Aditham spoke with Wolff shortly after he took the position for a three-part Media Beat interview, where he called the relaunch “necessary” and “obvious” and said of Prometheus “the support is there and it’s rich.” You can click here for all of the segments of that interview.
Update: The answer to the question, according to FishbowlNY, is no. Prometheus chairman Jimmy Finkelstein says he’s not being fired and he wouldn’t announce it in the media if he were. This story is a couple of days old, so perhaps there was some talking going on over the weekend to avoid a dismissal? Either way, we’re always happy when there’s good jobs news to report.
