Human Events Replaces Group Publisher


By Eddie Scarry Comment

Eagle Publishing has named its replacement for Human Events‘s Vice President/Group Publisher. Taking over for Joe Guerriero, who starts as Clarity Media Group’s chief revenue officer on April 29, is Jim deGraffenreid.

deGraffenreid’s LinkedIn profile indicates he is the CEO of EEI Communications, a media training and staffing company based in Hanover, Md. He joins Human Events with a mess to sort out. The conservative weekly recently shut down its print edition, laying off scores of staffers. It is now a strictly online publication with about three people producing and managing its content. It is rumored that Human Events will eventually fold into RedState, a conservative blog also owned by Eagle Publishing.

We’ve requested comment from deGraffenreid and Eagle Publishing President Jeff Carneal.
