SAVEUR EDITOR IN CHIEF TAKES NEW POST AT NEWSWEEK

Published on .

Dorothy Kalins, editor in chief of World Publications' Saveur and Garden Design, will head for a newly created executive editor position at Newsweek. Ms. Kalins will begin at the Newsweek at the end of April.

Under Ms. Kalins, Saveur garnered 17 National Magazine Award nominations and was Advertising Age's Magazine of the Year in 1996. But translating editorial excellence into ad pages has proved tricky. For all of 2000, Saveur's ad pages fell off 23.7%, and its pages for January were off 11.1%.

In addition to her duties at Newsweek -- where her executive editor position will place her beneath managing editor Jon Meacham on the masthead -- Ms. Kalins will serve as a liaison between Newsweek's editor of new media, Peter McGrath, and the company's Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel magazine. -- Jon Fine
