Time Inc. – First Woman Editor in Chief Martha Nelson Exits


Time Inc. announced Thursday that Norman Pearlstine, its former editor in chief, would return to the company as executive vice president and chief content officer. He is leaving Bloomberg L.P., which he joined in 2008 and where he also was chief content officer.

In bringing back Mr. Pearlstine, who was editor in chief from 1995 until 2005, Time Inc. said it would eliminate the editor in chief position. The current person in that job, Martha Nelson, would be leaving the company, the company said.

Ms. Nelson, the first women to be editor in chief at Time Inc., had held the position only since January, though she has been with Time Inc. for 20 years and served as founding editor of InStyle as well as editor of People.
