Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, May 16, 2021

The media wags are buzzing over the rumor of a high-level shake-up at Time Magazine, with new editor-in-chief John Huey allegedly putting incumbent managing editor Jim Kelly in the bullseye.

It wouldn’t be a shocker, Kelly’s solid stewardship notwithstanding. A new regime is often compelled to sweep out the old and bring in a new crew.

What would be a shocker: Replacing Kelly with Tina Brown, the most buzz-worthy editorial luminary of the current era. New York Magazine is reporting a long look from Huey at Brown, and an announcement could come as soon as this week.

Installing anyone who hasn’t come up through the Time Inc. ranks to the mag’s top operational spot is jarring enough. I guess going with Brown would be the way to really register on the mediascape’s Richter scale. With the unstable state of newsmagazines, it’s a move that could pay off tremendously.
