FoxÂ has served as editor-in-chief of Affinity Labs for the past year.
For much of the 1990s, Fox served in editorial management positions at PC World, a leading online resource for technology buyers and users with an average reach of more than eight million unique visitors and 31 million page views per month.
“Steve has just the right skill set for PC World as we grow rapidly to become the online resource for professional and consumer technology buyers,” said Mike Kisseberth, president & CEO, PC World Communications,Â in a statement. “He’s a talented journalist and editorial executive for both print and online, and Steve immersed himself in social networking for professionals at Affinity Labs. His community-building expertise will be a valuable addition to our team.”
Fox was managing editor, senior editor, and executive editor at PC World from 1990-96 before joining another IDG publication, The Web magazine, as its editor-in-chief. He was editorial director at CNET.com from 1999-2002, but returned to IDG as editor-in-chief for InfoWorld in 2003.
