Chad Millman has been named the new Editor-in-Chief of ESPN The Magazine, effective June 15th. Current EIC Gary Belsky will remain an Editor-at-Large through January 2012, reports Romenesko.
Millman is currently a Senior Editor, and will take over for Belsky as the magazine makes its move to Bristol, Connecticut. Judging from ESPN’s press release, Belksy doesn’t care much for the future hood:
As we prepare for our move to Bristol, Gary’s preference was to remain primarily in New York, which we understand and appreciate. We’re fortunate to have a wonderfully talented successor already on our roster with Chad Millman, whose unique editorial vision and unparalleled knowledge of the sporting landscape we’re confident will give us a new energy and continue to make the magazine a must-read for sports fans.
Yeah, we tend to agree. New York > Bristol.
