PAPANEK NAMED DIRECTOR OF NEW MEDIA DEVELOPMENT AT TIME INC.
PAPANEK NAMED DIRECTOR OF NEW MEDIA DEVELOPMENT AT TIME INC. NEW YORK, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- John Papanek has been named director of New Media Development at Time Inc., it was announced today by Reginald K. Brack, Jr., Time Inc.'s chairman, president and CEO, and Jason McManus, editor-in-chief of Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX) Papanek, 40, was most recently managing editor of Sports Illustrated. Mark Mulvoy, Sports Illustrated's publisher and its former managing editor, will assume the additional role of managing editor. He will continue as the magazine's publisher. In his new position, Papanek will spearhead the exploration and development of new media such as interactive media, information services and new communications technologies. In making the announcement, Brack and McManus said, "This task requires not only superb journalistic instincts and creative flair, but also an enthusiasm for new technologies, which John has in abundance." Papanek will have access to all the resources of Time Inc.. He will also serve as the company's representative to the other parts of Time Warner which are vigorously pursuing growth in these areas. Born and raised in Patchogue, Long Island, Papanek started to work as a Sports Illustrated reporter right out of the University of Michigan in 1973. In 1977, he became a staff writer at the magazine. He was promoted to senior editor in 1983, a position he held until January 1989 when he became founding managing editor of Sports Illustrated For Kids. Papanek was named managing editor of Sports Illustrated in October 1990. Brack and McManus added, "As is always the case when a good man or woman is urgently needed in two places at once. John's departure from Sports Illustrated leaves vacant a large job. So we have asked Mark to fill two roles for a time with the specific charge of identifying and training his successor as managing editor of Sports Illustrated as expeditiously as possible." Characterizing Mulvoy's double assignment as "temporary," Brack and McManus explained, "No one, not even someone as giftedly ambidextrous as Mulvoy, should be asked alone to balance the sometimes contradictory demands of publishing and editorial decisions--particularly on a weekly magazine. So we have concluded S.I.'s interests will best be served during this period if Mulvoy reports exclusively to the Editor-in- Chief." Mulvoy, 50, began his career as a reporter for Sports Illustrated in 1965. He wrote on baseball, pro football, golf and hockey until 1976, when he became a senior editor of the magazine. In 1981, he was promoted to assistant managing editor and was named Sports Illustrated's fifth managing editor in November 1984. He became publisher of the magazine in October 1990. Mulvoy, who was born in Boston, received a B.A. degree from Boston College in 1964. -0- 4/24/92 /CONTACT: Peter Costiglio of Time Inc., 212-522-3927/ (TWX) CO: Time Inc.; Time Warner Inc.
