A well-placed source informed FishbowlNY today that Condé Nast Portfolio managing editor Christopher Jones is leaving the magazine. Jones, the former programming director of Yahoo! Finance and editorial director of About.com, was responsible for managing Portfolio.com’s online staff.
If true, Jones’ departure is the latest in a string of high-profile personnel changes at the magazine.
Calls to Portfolio had not been returned as of press time.
Update: Portfolio has confirmed Jones’ departure. However, he will stay on for the time being as a consultant and will assist in the hunt for a replacement.
