[em]Outside[/em] Names Keyes Editor

Outside magazine, the Santa Fe, N.M-based adventure-sports monthly, has named Texas Monthly editorial director Christopher Keyes as its new editor. The position had been empty for two months, since editor Hal Espen left the stubble-chinned monthly to pursue freelance writing. According to a source familiar with the search, Outside‘s owner and editor-in-chief Lawrence Burke considered Outside‘s current editorial director Alex Heard before choosing Keyes. Keyes began his magazine career at Outside as an intern in 1999.
