Texas Monthly Exec Editor Splits for National Mags| People on the Move — 03.15.17
Fortune promotes a new editor-in-chief, The New Yorker's poetry editor gives notice, and more...
Pamela Colloff has left her post as executive editor of Texas Monthly, after twenty years and an entire career spent at the magazine. She joins The New York Times Magazine and ProPublica as a writer-at-large and senior reporter, respectively.
Colloff’s role marks a major shift — not just for her career, but for all three entities affected by her employment. It’s a first-of-its-kind arrangement for The New York Times Magazine and ProPublica, which will share Colloff’s reporting between the two media entities.
It also solidifies speculation that tomorrow’s Texas Monthly will look remarkably different than the Texas Monthly of yore. Colloff’s departure follows the resignation of EIC Brian Sweany, who voluntarily left following the magazine’s sale to Paul Hobby.
Clifton Leaf has been named editor-in-chief of Fortune. Formerly deputy editor, Leaf replaces Alan Murray, who will take on the title of president, while continuing in his role as chief content officer for the entirety of Time Inc. Adam Lashinsky has also been promoted to executive editor.

Keith R. Hernandez has joined Bleacher Report as SVP of brand strategy. Hernandez was president of Slate Media until November.
