Time Inc. has promoted Charlie Kammerer, publisher of This Old House Ventures since 2009, to the newly created post of group publisher in charge of This Old House and Coastal Living.
Mr. Kammerer is assuming responsibilities that had been handled by Peter Medwid, who had been VP and publisher Coastal Living and Sunset magazines until he left Time Inc. last month to become the first dedicated publisher at Martha Stewart Living since 2008.
Ad pages increased 8.2% at This Old House in 2011, a year when magazines as a whole saw ad pages slip 3.1%. Advertising Age named This Old House to the Magazine A-List last October.
Ad pages at Coastal Living fell 12.8% in 2011, according to the Publishers Information Bureau.
Time Inc. has not yet named a successor to Mr. Medwid at Sunset, where ad pages declined 9.7% last year.
