People in print: Changes at Marketing, Clean Eating and more
Lucy Collin has been appointed as the director of sales for Marketing magazine and CARDonline, which are owned by Rogers Publishing Inc. Collin, previously the senior sales manager for Marketing, will oversee both publications, as well as associated conferences and award shows. Collin spent 15 years at CBC, mostly managing sales for sports and Olympic programming. She also has experience on the agency side (MBS, Grey Advertising, JWT).

Clean Eating Magazine, part of Mississauga, Ont.-based Robert Kennedy Publishing, has promoted Kevin Shaw to art director. Shaw, a George Brown grad who’s been with the company for about a year in senior designer and associate art director roles, is stepping up to fill in for creative director Caren Watkins, who will be going on maternity leave this summer. Shaw’s previous experience includes an art director job with Osprey magazines and a senior design editor job with Collingwood, Ont.-based Rennie Media Inc.

Benjamin Leszcz, a former editor with Saturday Night, Toro and EnRoute magazines, became the editor of the recently re-launched back in January. The online magazine and e-newsletter was founded in 2006 and is aimed at men in Canadian cities such as Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.

QuillBlog reports that The Peep Diaries, the latest book from Broken Pencil co-founder Hal Niedzviecki, was named one of this summer’s “25 Books You Can’t Put Down” by Oprah Winfrey, “the world’s most influential reader.” A write-up about the book appears on and in the July 2009 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. (Rumour has it Niedzviecki was considered for the cover but the editors decided to go with Oprah at the last minute.)
