The New York Post has some more gossip regarding Michael Wolffand Adweek. Apparently one of the magazine’s investors, Jimmy Finkelstein, is leading the charge to get rid of Wolff, so much so that even Wolff is expecting to be fired soon. Finkelstein is looking to return Adweek to its advertising roots, so word is he’s looking directly at Ad Age — Adweek’s biggest rival — for Wolff’s replacement.
Wolff is still scheduled to speak at a number of events starting on Monday (which, cruelly, is his one year anniversary at Adweek) for Advertising Week, so perhaps he’ll be around for a little bit longer.
There’s also some buzz that Wolff might not be the only one getting the axe. Adweek’s Publisher, Erica Bartman, is getting flak for ad sales dropping after the redesign launched.
Happy Friday everyone?
