Inc. hires executive editor, editor at large
Inc. magazine, which named James Ledbetter as its editor earlier this year, has hired Jon Fine in the newly created position of executive editor and David Whitford as an editor at large.
Nicole Levy of Capital New York writes, “Fine has previously worked as a media columnist for BusinessWeek, an on-air contributor for CNBC and a print media reporter for Advertising Age. He’ll start at Inc. on May 5, as Ledbetter announced this afternoon in a staff memo obtained by Capital.
“Whitford has already returned to Inc., where he was a senior writer for the magazine in the mid-’90s, from Fortune, where he was an editor at large covering energy, politics and business.
“Ledbetter, who left Reuters in January to edit the monthly, is currently recruiting new columnists for both the magazine and its website.”
