Time winding down for John Huey
November 15, 2012
After six years on the job, it’s apparently Time for John Huey to move on.
The editor in chief of Time Inc. will be gone by year’s end, according to The New York Post’s Keith Kelly, stepping aside of his own accord as his 65th birthday nears next spring.
It’s unclear if he has any future plans lined up.
Huey led the magazine publisher during a time of transition. Time Inc. cut hundreds of jobs during his tenure as magazine ad revenue fell sharply.
He’s also helped shepherd the company into the digital age despite deep uncertainty as to what that means for the print industry.
He stayed on through three different chief executive officers, including Laura Lang, the former Digitas chief who joined in January.
Huey took over the top editorial spot in 2006, succeeding Norm Pearlstine. Before that he served a five-year stint as editorial director, and he was editor of Fortune before that.
Martha Nelson, currently Huey’s No. 2, is expected to inherit his job. She has worked at People and InStyle.
