Nancy Gibbs Announces New Hires Along With Her Plans for Time

By: Andrew Beaujon | Poynter

New Time Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs will announce two hires this week, she told Poynter in a phone call Tuesday evening: Senior Editor Matt Vella will become business editor of the news organization, and former New York Post deputy features editor Isaac Guzman (as Joe Pompeo reported last month) will become Time’s culture editor.

Vella and Guzman will edit across platforms: There will be no Web/print divide in the Gibbs era. “I think I’m the first editor of Time to take over with a larger digital audience than print audience,” Gibbs said. She’s restructured Time’s meetings — Time won’t miss out on “stories that someone had a great idea that never made it to the right person.”
