John Huey

John Huey is expected to step down as editor-in-chief of the Time Inc. empire by the end of the year, Media Ink has learned.

Martha Nelson, a veteran of People and InStyle who is currently the No. 2 as the editorial director of the company, is expected to move into the top spot.

Although there is no longer mandatory retirement at age 65, Huey turns 65 next spring, and he’s quietly been telling friends he will be leaving.

Within days of Jack Griffin’s being fired as CEO of Time Inc., his name disappeared from its corporate Web site. The name that now sits atop the organizational chart is that of John Huey, the company’s editorial boss.
