Time Inc. exec jumps ship for iPad magazine app Flipboard

updated 03:00 pm EDT, Fri June 3, 2011

Covered digital world for 15 years

Veteran newsman Josh Quittner will be leaving the nation's largest publisher to join Internet startup Flipboard as its editorial director. Quitner has written extensively about the digital revolution during his fifteen years at Time, Inc., which included stints at Time magazine, the now-defunct new media magazine Business 2.0, and Fortune. Quittner is currently Time Inc.'s director of digital editorial development for the news, sports and business magazines. He had been involved in the negotiations to bring tablet editions of Time, Inc. publications to the iPad and Android platforms.

Quittner moves into his new role on July 4. No direct replacement at Time, Inc. has been named.

Quittner is the latest big name to leave Time Inc.'s digital division. When former CEO Jack Griffin was fired after just five months, Randall Rothenberg gave up his position of chief digital officer to return to the Interactive Advertising Bureau. [via NY Post Media Ink]
