Time Inc. to Name Laura Lang CEO

By

Lang's expertise seems particularly relevant, as magazine publishers continue trying to crack the code of digital advertising. Jack Griffin was fired from the job after only a few months back in February, when Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes announced in a memo that "his leadership style and approach did not mesh with Time Inc. and Time Warner."
