More top executives may quit Newsweek

Three more big names may resign from US magazine amidst publication's financial struggle

Newsweek magazine may see the resignation of three more top executives, following the announced departures of chief editor Jon Meacham and international editor Fareed Zakaria.

Editorial director Mark Miller, digital general manager Geoff Reiss and digital executive editor Gabriel Snyder plan to leave the financially struggling magazine, which was recently acquired by Sidney Harman from The Washington Post.

The news was reported by fashion and retail portal WWD based on sources familiar with the matter. Newsweek has offered no comments.

Miller has been with the magazine for 25 years, holding various posts including Washington correspondent, chief of correspondents and assistant managing editor.

Reiss was chief executive of Associated Content before joining Newsweek in 2008. Prior to that, he worked with ESPN, including as senior vice president of programming, production and operations for its website, the WSJ reports.

Snyder, the former chief editor of Gawker, joined Newsweek in May this year, just before The Post announced its intention to sell the magazine.
