Editor in Chief, TIME
Edward Felsenthal is the Editor in Chief of TIME, the 18th top editor since TIME’s founding in 1923. Under Felsenthal’s leadership, TIME has reached the largest audience in its history—100 million people around the world, built a world-class video operation that won an Emmy in 2017 and a National Magazine Award in 2018, and significantly expanded its franchises and events. TIME’s agenda-setting magazine, with 2 million subscribers, remains the largest U.S. print title in news.
Felsenthal joined TIME in April 2013 as editor of TIME digital, and led a major expansion of TIME’s digital footprint, including the establishment of a 24/7 newsroom and video operation. During that time, TIME’s audience tripled, with monthly video streams exceeding 100 million across platforms and social media followers exceeding 50 million.
In 2016, Felsenthal was named Group Digital Director of News and Lifestyle at Time Inc., a role in which he led digital content and growth across a dozen titles, including TIME, Health, MONEY, Real Simple, Southern Living, Travel & Leisure and Food & Wine.
Felsenthal began his career at The Wall Street Journal, rising to deputy managing editor in 2005 and serving as the founding editor of Personal Journal, where he led coverage that won two Pulitzer Prizes. Earlier in his career, he covered the U.S. Supreme Court in the Journal’s Washington bureau.
In 2008, he was the founding executive editor of The Daily Beast, a role in which he built and managed a digital newsroom that quickly grew from a startup to a nationally known brand.
A native of Memphis, Felsenthal graduated from Princeton University. He has a J.D. from Harvard Law School and a master’s in law and diplomacy from the Fletcher School at Tufts. He is admitted to the bar in the District of Columbia and Tennessee.
