Nigel Beale launches a crusade to have Richard Charkin start blogging again. I’d love to see it happen too!
Go linking and commenting!
This is fairly big news, even the Wall Street Journal is reporting it:
Jane Friedman is leaving as president and chief executive officer of News Corp.’s HarperCollins Publishers Worldwide, the second book-publishing chief to exit in a few weeks.
Gawker are a little more sensationalist about it (as you’d expect):
We’re hearing a wild rumor that Jane Friedman was just fired from her perch atop News Corp.’s HarperCollins. If true, this would sure lend a hefty dose of irony to the publishing executive’s quote in the Observer today, gleaned from an industry party on the Twentieth Century Fox lot Saturday: “I love being CEO of HarperCollins!”
Two majors changing leaders within weeks. It is a touch time to be at the top it seems!
