Robyn Moreno has been promoted from Editorial Director to Co-President of Latina magazine in the midst of financial turbulence for the publication.
She’ll sharing the title with Asten Morgan, who was upped from his Executive Director of Integrated Media role, after the resignation earlier this month of acting president Brett Wright.
Staffers have not been paid in almost a month, according to information and emails obtained by the New York Post.
“We are writing to let you know that you will receive a payroll deposit on Friday,” Moreno and Morgan wrote to staffers after they were promoted to to co-presidents Tuesday. “We get how unsettling this has been for all of our employees and we are grateful and inspired by how you are hanging tough.”
Media Ink columnist Keith Kelly says insiders told him the company is late in mailing the magazine to subscribers, with the March/April only sent out last week and the May/June yet to be shipped out.
According to Kelly, in his resignation memo to staffers Wright wrote that he expected the company to continue to be “challenged.”
Latina magazine was founded by Christy Haubegger in 1996.
