Andelman had been running the Web site for the past three years. He starts at the magazine on June 2.
Andelman joins Forbes.com from The New York Daily News, where he was business editorÂ from 2001 to 2005. Previously, he was editor in chief of a global business and financial news Web site, Smallcapcenter.com, and before that he served as news editor at Bloomberg News for four and a half years.
The World Policy Journal is published by the World Policy Institute. In an e-mail, Andelman tells Talking Biz News, “World Policy was an enormous opportunity really to take on a wonderful media project — one that really has the capacity of influencing the global policy agenda at a critical moment.
“WPJ is a terrific magazine and the synergy with a potent website makes it a really important and powerful tool. It was simply too good an opportunity to pass up, particularly in view of my extensive overseas background as a foreign correspondent (I’ve reported from more than 60 countries) and my editing and policy experience.”
