Jim Ledbetter has been editor of Inc. for only a little over three months, but he’s already found his executive editor. The New York Post is reporting that Jon Fine is joining Inc. in May to take on the role.
Fine — husband of Mediabistro founder Laurel Touby — is a veteran media journalist, having spent nine years at Ad Age and Businessweek. He also spent a year as editorial director of Magnum Photos. Fine has been busy writing a memoir about his time in the indie rock scene. The book — due out next year — carries the fantastic title of Your Band Sucks.
In other Inc. news, David Whitford is returning to the magazine as editor-at-large. Whitford wrote for Inc. before leaving for Fortune in the late 90s.
