Anyone hear of Co-Executive Editors? What would be higher as an
Managing editor means that only???? More of an administrator than one
with high editorial type functions. What's the difference between
Executive Editor and Executive Director? I thought Managing Editor was
more of a an Exec Dir but with more editorial type duties. Would
appreciate clarification on this. Thanks.
