Keith Kelly of The New York Post reports Friday that Time Inc. will be making a change in the person who leads its business publications, which include Fortune, Business 2.0 — which Kelly says is in danger of being folded into another magazine — and Money.

Vivek ShahKelly wrote, “Chris Poleway, president of the group known as the Time Inc. Business and Financial Network, is out in a shake-up that could be announced as early as today, sources said. Vivek Shah will take over Poleway’s old job, said informed sources.
