NEW YORK: Newsweek made some news of its own last week when its communications director, Roy Brunett, and marketing director, Mike Henneberry, left the magazine.

The departures follow a reorganization in which former publisher, Carolyn Wall, will take over as director of marketing and communications. Wall's previous position is being eliminated.

Brunett said: 'With the re-organization I opted to resign and will be departing in April.'

Brunett has been working at Newsweek for two-and-a-half years, publicizing editors, correspondents and special issues.

Brunett was previously with the Susan Magrino Agency where he worked on The New York Times Magazine and Time's 75th anniversary. He is also a former communications executive for Fox News and CBS News.

Last week, Newsweek released at least nine stories on PR Newswire. They included promotions on the magazine's cover story, 'Fighting Addiction,' which features interviews with friends of Robert Downey Jr. The title also released news about its feature on Sean 'Puffy' Combs' clothing line.
