Ch-Ch-Changes: Spin Gets New Editor and Publisher
According to the New York Times, Spin Magazine has parted ways with its longtime editor Doug Brod, as well as its publisher Malcolm Campbell. Spin has made this change despite a more than 20% increase in advertising revenue during the first quarter of 2011. Still, the McEnvoy group, who purchased the magazine in 2006, felt a change needed to be made. The NYT speculates that the change has to do with Spin establishing itself as a magazine that breaks independent artists over mainstream stars. The new EIC is longtime deputy editor Steve Kandell. The new publisher is Mike Albanese.
