People and EW President to be Named Soon

An anticipated announcement.

Time Inc. is expected to name a president to oversee People and Entertainment Weekly “soon” according to the New York Post.

The move will likely be welcomed with open arms by staffers, who weeks ago received word that the two magazines would be merging teams. Once a president is named things should — hopefully — calm down. People is also Time Inc.’s money machine. Allowing a behemoth like that to go directionless for so long is just not a good idea.

As for the two magazines, recent casualties of the merger include PR staffers Nancy Valentino and Amy Galleazzi and EW online editor Kyle Ryan.
