Diane Newman Leaves Meredith To Return To American Media Inc.

Diane Newman has left her post as vice president and group publisher of Meredith’s Parents and American Baby to be executive vice president and publishing director of American Media’s Active Lifestyle Group, which includes Fit Pregnancy, Natural Health, and Shape magazines. Newman had previously worked as American Media’s senior vice president/group publisher of American Media International’s Active Lifestyle Group where she oversaw sales and marketing efforts for several titles. Oddly, no mention is made of her former time at AMI in the NY Post‘s report on her switch back.

Newman announced her resignation mid-morning yesterday, just before AMI American Media Inc’s chairman and CEO David Pecker was scheduled to announce her arrival.
