Waukesha, WI, Dec. 17, 2012—With the publication of the March 2013 issue of Discover magazine, Kalmbach Publishing Co. completes the transition of Discover’s editorial offices from New York to Waukesha, Wis., including the hiring of a new editorial and design staff.

Discover has been a leading science and technology magazine for more than 30 years and has a circulation of 550,000. Kalmbach also publishes Astronomy, the world’s largest-circulation astronomy magazine.

Led by new Editor in Chief Stephen C. George, the Discover staff includes several editors with extensive credentials in science journalism.

George comes to Discover after stints at several national magazines. Most recently he was executive editor at the Reader’s Digest Association in Greendale, Wis., where he headed up RDA’s book and special-publication division.

He previously held senior editorial positions at Better Homes & Gardens, The Saturday Evening Post (where he was editor-in-chief), and Prevention magazine. He is a graduate of Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and earned a master’s degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.

George succeeds Corey S. Powell, who served on Discover’s staff for 15 years, including four years as editor in chief. Powell also launched the magazine’s website, DiscoverMagazine.com. He will continue to be associated with the magazine as editor at large, writing the magazine’s “Out There” column and blog posts covering various topics related to astronomy and physics.

Working in a consulting role will be Executive Editor Pamela Weintraub, who has worked at Discover for five years. A former editor-in-chief at Omni magazine, Weintraub wrote the widely acclaimed book “Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme Epidemic” (St. Martin’s Press, 2008).

The new staff includes two senior editors, Tasha Eichenseher and Siri Carpenter. Eichenseher formerly was environment editor and producer at National Geographic Digital Media. She has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Oregon and a master’s degree in environmental management from Yale University.

Carpenter has written for the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, O – The Oprah Magazine, Prevention, and several other publications. She is a founding editor of The Open Notebook, an online resource for science journalists. Her education includes a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Wisconsin, and a master’s and Ph.D. in the same subject from Yale.
