Meet Newsweek's new EIC
Only days after Tina Brown left the position, Jim Impoco has been named editor-in-chief of Newsweek. Impoco joins the ever-changing publication from Thomson Reuters, where he served for four years as enterprise editor and executive editor for Thomson Reuters Digital. He tweeted, "Incredibly thrilled and honored to be the next editor in chief of @Newsweek. Watch this space (please)!"
Caren Bohan of Reuters remarked, "Congrats to the hugely talented @jimpoco who succeeds Tina Brown as Newsweek's editor-in-chief." (Earlier this week it was announced that Brown will depart Newsweek's former parent company IAC altogether when her contract expires.) Christopher Zara of the International Business Times had some friendly advice: "Welcome @jimpoco. If you need something from the vending machine, may I suggest the veggie crisps?"
