Elizabeth McIntyre

Crain’s Cleveland names McIntyre its new editor


Elizabeth McIntyre is the new editor of Crain’s Cleveland Business.

Jay Miller of Crain’s Cleveland writes, “She replaces Mark Dodosh, who joined Crain’s as managing editor in June 1985 and was named editor in October 1988.

“‘Anyone who has worked alongside Elizabeth knows she is a fountain of ideas, a brilliant editor and a leader who inspires a staff like no one I know,’ said John Campanelli, Crain’s publisher and editorial director.

“McIntyre, who starts today, April 14, had been vice president of communications and public relations at the National Association of College Stores in Oberlin. She said she is looking forward to returning to a newsroom.

“‘I finally realized that I still have ink running through my veins,’ she said in a telephone interview. ‘When this opportunity presented itself, it was such a fabulous opportunity to work with a staff at Crain’s, who are extraordinary journalists, and to partner with John Campanelli, who I greatly admire as a journalist and a person.’

“Campanelli and McIntyre worked together at The Plain Dealer for more than a decade.”

Cassie Walker Burke

Crain’s Chicago hires AME


Cassie Walker Burke, the No. 2 editor at Chicago magazine, has quit to join Crain’s Chicago Business as an assistant managing editor, reports Robert Feder.

Feder writes, “Burke, whose title was executive editor, is the third Chicago magazine veteran to jump to Crain’s and the latest in a list of editorial staffers to leave the Tribune Co.-owned monthly since Elizabeth Fenner became editor in chief in September 2011.

“‘I had a great run at Chicago mag, one that gave me the opportunity to work with the city’s top magazine editors and writers,’ Burke told me. ‘But 12 years is a long time to stay in one place in the media business, and I couldn’t pass up the chance to round out my experience in a faster-paced newsroom. Crain’s is a smart brand; it’s going to be an adventure.’

Michael Arndt, editor of Crain’s, confirmed that Burke will start March 31 as assistant managing editor in charge of the publication’s Focus section. She succeeds Ann Dwyer, who was promoted to deputy managing editor, a newly created position under managing editor Steve Reiss.”

Rich Miller

Rich Miller, a well-known political columnist in Chicago, has been hired by Crain’s Chicago Business to write a regular column, reports Robert Feder.

Feder writes, “Starting Friday, Miller’s column will appear twice monthly on chicagobusiness.com and eventually will be seen in Crain’s weekly print publication as well.

“The move marks a return to Chicago media for Miller, 51, whose eight-year run as a free-lance columnist for the Sun-Times ended in January.

“‘I thoroughly enjoyed my years writing for the Sun-Times and I’m looking forward to a new challenge with Crain’s,’ Miller said Thursday. ‘[Crain’s political columnist] Greg Hinz has been a good friend for a very long time, and his encouragement convinced me that I should embrace this change. So far, I’ve totally enjoyed dealing with the management, and I’m looking forward to the publication of my inaugural column.’

“Miller’s crossing coincides with major initiatives at both Crain’s and the Sun-Times to boost coverage of government, politics and public affairs. As reported here earlier, the Sun-Times is about to marshal all of its political and government content in a new digital platform, sponsored by Jasculca Terman Strategic Communications.”

Crain’s New York seeks events editor


Crain’s New York produces 20 to 25 thought-provoking events annually covering New York City industries and the policy issues that are most important to businesses in the New York area.

Our events are a live, in-person extension of our original, high-quality journalism in print and online, attracting anywhere from 100 to 1,000+ attendees to both public and private forums. The conferences and events editor is a newsroom staff member who creates and oversees the editorial content for all Crain’s events. He or she reports to the editor.

The ideal candidate is an editor with a background covering New York City business and politics and who is comfortable speaking before large groups. Previous experience programming events and moderating events is highly helpful, but not essential.

Responsibilities include developing the editorial programming for our events; identifying the latest news topics and emerging trends of highest interest to our audience; building source relationships with potential panelists from the worlds of business, government, nonprofits and public policy; securing the best speakers and participants for a must-attend event, and coordinating Crain’s own coverage of its newsmaker events though our print, online, video and social media outlets.

The Conferences & Events Editor must possess strong writing skills and meticulous editing skills. He or she must have the local news smarts to develop compelling questions for panelists at our events in concert with the newsroom and the communications savvy to coach Crain’s staffers on moderating panels and to serve as a skilled moderator if needed. He or she must play well with others, especially in collaborating with the Director of Conferences & Events in pre- and post-event logistics to ensure that the editorial content portions of our events are executed seamlessly and professionally. And he or she must have both a talent for devising innovative programming in a highly competitive marketplace for conferences and 100% commitment to producing the best live journalism in town.

Uncovering artifacts when moving your biz news operation


Glenn Coleman, the editor of Crain’s New York Business, writes about moving during the long weekend for both Crain’s New York and the New York City offices of Crain Communications publications such as AdAge, InvestmentNews, plus a bunch of New York bureaus for various Crain’s publications such as Automotive News, Modern Healthcare, and Pensions & Investments.

Coleman writes, “Oh, the things you learn when it’s time to move to a new office building. For instance: Altoids mints have expiration dates. (Best if used by February 2007, the tin states, yet still curiously strong in February 2014.)

“These past few weeks, my newsroom staff has been filling Dumpsters with more than 15 years’ worth of yellowed reporter notebooks, dust-coated background files, never-cracked-open blue-ribbon commission reports and all sorts of scraps in preparation for the big move this past weekend from our longtime home at 711 Third Ave. all the way across the street to 685 Third Ave.

“‘What’s that?’ a 30-year-old asked as a colleague held up a cassette that showed the little brown ribbon of recording tape. The curled fax pages. The X-acto knife blades. The Bear Stearns notepads. The ‘Honk if you’ve been threatened by Eliot!’ bumper sticker. The November 1999 issue of Talk magazine (232 pages of pure stupid). The 1998 Forbes column that argued Michael Bloomberg should sell his company because it probably had peaked in value at $6 billion to $10 billion. (An expert quoted in the piece was one of Bernie Madoff’s kids.)

“The pearls from our purge offered younger staffers evidence that, yes, there once was a functioning world without Google and PDFs, and reminded older hands here that, yes, we are old. My favorite: an ancient memo from my predecessor Greg David, sternly reminding all reporters they ‘must file a Web news item each week.’ One Web news story a week? Most Crain’s reporters now file one story a day; some even more. And still we produce that newspaper, week after week after week.”
