Brill shuffle aims for a lighter tone at watchdog mag

NEW YORK: Brill's Content, the media watchdog magazine, is currently undergoing a series of editorial changes.

Editor Michael Kramer is leaving because of longstanding 'differences' with magazine founder Stephen Brill.

Brill told The New York Times last week that he wants to change the editorial tone of the paper to make it a lighter read. He acknowledged that the magazine sometimes read like 'homework.'

Earlier this year, executive editor Eric Garland quit the title, launched in June as an attempt to look at the rights and wrongs of the US media.

Editorial director Eric Effron will become Brill's number two.

Also quitting is Elizabeth Jensen, who will join the LA Times as a NY-based television writer. Jensen was previously with The Wall Street Journal and moved to Content in May.
