Deputy Editor Fired From Portfolio

This morning, Portfolio editor Joanne Lipman fired deputy editor Jim Impoco, according to a staffer.

Mr. Impoco, former editor of the New York Times Sunday business section, was responsible for bringing in top talent to the Conde Nast business magazine (or is it a women's magazine?)—which just closed issue number two—and it’s a big loss for the Conde Nast start-up.

A Portfolio spokesperson said: “Jim Impoco left the magazine and we wish him well.” The spokesperson would not confirm that he was fired.
