Major Exits At Newsweek/Daily Beast

After less than a year in the position, Ray Chelstowski is out as publisher of Newsweek/Daily Beast. Unrelatedly except for timing, executive editor Edward Felsenthal and managing editor Tom Weber have both resigned.

The news is coming from multiple reports in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and more.

PaidContent reports that Chelstowski will be replaced by Eric Danetz, joining from CBS Interactive.

Felsenthal, who served as a “buffer between staff and [Tina] Brown,” according to Adweek, had called his job “exhausting” two years ago, and told the NY Observer that NewsBeast management had been aware he was planning to resign “for months.” He’ll be replaced by Mark Miller, who worked for Newsweek from 1985 until last year when Newsweek was sold to the late Sidney Harman.

Managing editor Weber won’t be replaced.
