Some of the bigger-name casualties of today’s massive Time Inc. layoffs are starting to trickle out. Among the notables are Real Simple publisher Sally Preston, who jumped over from rival Martha Stewart Living a little over a year ago to the powerhouse lifestyle brand. Also gone is Health editor Ellen Kunes, who has been with the brand since 2007 and who led a much-touted redesign in 2010.
Picking up Real Simple will be Charlie Kammerer, who had been group publisher of This Old House and Coastal Living. Those two titles will be handled by AP Nate Stamos and Lifestyle Group publisher Greg Keyes, respectively. All You editor Clare McHugh will add responsibility for Health.
The cuts were by no means limited to the Lifestyle Group. At Entertainment Weekly, Erik Yates, an ad director who just started there in March from Rolling Stone, was also let go.
