Newsmax Media, a leading independent online news site and magazine, has appointed Ken Chandler editor of Newsmax magazine.
Chandler will be based in Newsmax’s New York office, where he will be responsible for managing and editing the publication, assuming these duties from founder Christopher Ruddy. Ruddy will retain the title of CEO, president and editor-in-chief of Newsmax.com, its online news portal.
In connection with this announcement, Cable Neuhaus will become Newsmax’s corporate creative director, a promotion from his role as editorial director of the publication.
Before joining Newsmax, Chandler spent 29 years at News Corp. in the United States, where he was editor-in-chief of The New York Post and an editorial director of the Boston Herald. Most recently, Chandler was president of Chandler Regan Strategies, a crisis-management PR firm based in New York.
"Ken is a remarkable journalist and editor,” Ruddy said. “His many years of editorial experience with News Corp. makes him the perfect fit to oversee and edit Newsmax magazine. We are pleased to have Ken on board to not only direct magazine efforts, but to help grow our New York office, as the company continues its expansion plans in New York and Washington, D.C.”
Chandler also will oversee Newsmax’s online financial news website, Moneynews.com, which is published from Newsmax’s New York office.
Chandler and his wife, Erika Schwartz, M.D., live in Westchester County, N.Y., with their five children. He is a director of The Bridge Fund, an organization dedicated to preventing homelessness among the working poor of Westchester and New York City.
