Adweek Taps Feuer to Run News

Jack Feuer has been promoted to national news editor of Adweek, the top news position at the magazine.

In this capacity, he will work with the two dozen-plus reporters and editors covering the agency business to develop the weekly national news well.

Feuer, who most re cently held the title of media editor, will also continue to guide the magazine’s media coverage. His new role is effective immediately.

Feuer will be based in Los Angeles and continue to report to Adweek editor Alison Fahey. “Jack has a great nose for news,” said Fahey. “This, combined with his passion for and deep insight into the ad business, and his thorough understanding of the role Adweek has and will con tinue to play, makes him an ideal choice for this job.”

All reporters and editors working on national news stories will report to Feuer. The editors of the five regional editions of Adweek will continue to report to Fahey.

Feuer has covered the advertising, marketing and media business for 25 years as a reporter, editor and columnist. “Advertising plays a central role in our economy and popular culture—the sizzle and the steak,” he said. “That’s why advertising is the most interesting beat in American journalism. I’m proud to play a part in the process.”

Before joining Adweek as media editor in November 1999, he was West Coast bureau chief for Inside Media magazine. From 1990-95, he was managing editor of J.D. Power and Associates, where he edited The Power Report on Automotive Marketing. Feuer also served as associate editor of Adweek’s Western edition from 1983-89.
