The move, announced by Time Inc.'s Editor in Chief Norman Pearlstine, comes with some shuffling of top editorial responsibilities for the company. In a memo, Mr. Pearlstine indicated will take on a broader role across AOL Time Warner units such as CNN and AOL, in addition to having an increased role in startups and acquisitions. Mr. Huey, Mr. Pearlstine wrote, will be editorial director "in name and fact" for Time Inc.'s portfolio.
Mr. Isaacson's role as editorial director, while somewhat less defined, included the role of Time Inc.'s in-house liaison to AOL and CNN.
Mr. Huey, 53, was lauded for his role in remaking Fortune, where he had been managing editor since 1995. Earlier this year, he was named editor of Fortune, with broad responsibilities for Time Inc.'s four other business titles. Advertising Age ranked Fortune No. 3 on its list of best magazines for 2000. Mr. Huey was Ad Age's Editor of the Year in 1997.
Also at Time Inc. today, In Style President Stephanie George named Lynette Harrison, 33, publisher of In Style. Ms. Harrison was previously vice president-group publisher of Fairchild Publications' Women's Wear Daily, working under Ms. George, who was president of Women's Wear Daily Media Worldwide.
