Rolling Stone Publisher Mastrangelo Fired
Jann Wenner has dismissed the publisher of his flagship Rolling Stone, Matt Mastrangelo. Mastrangelo had been in the position for three years (12 years in all at Wenner Media), and first-quarter ad pages were up 17 percent year over year to 190.
But Wenner is known to shuffle the publishing decks every few years at the magazine he co-founded. Mastrangelo got the word this morning, but apparently was told simply, “They are making a change.”
