Familiar Face at Rival Chosen for Science's Next News Editor
7 January 2013 2:10 pm
A veteran science journalist will be the next editor of Science's news section. Tim Appenzeller, chief magazine editor for Nature for the past several years, will replace current News Editor Colin Norman later this year, Alan Leshner, the chief executive officer of AAAS and executive publisher of Science, announced today.
Norman announced last year that he would retire after 32 years at Science once a successor was found. He has led the magazine's award-winning news section since the mid-1990s.
It will be Appenzeller's second stint at Science. He helped coordinate the magazine's news and feature sections from 1991 to 1999. He has also worked as a writer and editor for Time-Life Books, Scientific American, National Geographic, The Sciences, and U.S. News & World Report.
Appenzeller has won numerous awards for his work, including the American Geophysical Union's 2005 Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism for a National Geographic feature on climate science.
