On the heels of an editorial dustup that led to the sacking of a CEO,IDG Communications has named former CNET Networks executive Mike Kisseberth as president and CEO of PC World Communications and Mac Publishing, which produces Macworld magazine. IDG president Bob Carrigan had served as interim CEO at PC World and Macworld since May.
Kisseberth’s hiring comes four months after an editorial dispute that forced the magazine’s CEO, Colin Crawford, to step down after Crawford reportedly nixed an opinion piece by PC World editor-in-chief Harry McCracken. McCracken resigned but was re-instated as editor a week later. Crawford resumed his previous position as senior vice president of online.
