Jim Kelly is an American journalist and editor. As the managing editor of ?Time?, he oversees the world’s largest newsmagazine, with more than 5 million subscribers worldwide. He also is responsible for ?Time? for Kids, whose editions reach over 4 million schoolchildren nationwide, and Time.com, which attracts over 4 million visitors each month.
A 25-year ?Time? veteran, Kelly was named managing editor in January of 2001. He started at ?Time? as a writer in the Nation section, served as foreign editor during both Gulf War I and the fall of the Soviet Union, and became deputy managing editor in 1996. Kelly helped oversee ?Time?’s turn-of-the-century projects, including the magazine’s 75th anniversary celebration as well as the “?Time? 100” series of six issues which named and profiled the century’s most influential leaders.
Less than 36 hours after the 9/11 attacks, Kelly and his team produced a special ad-free issue that ?Time? gave away to its 4 million U.S. subscribers, and went back to press three times, ultimately distributing 8 million copies. ?Time? received a National Magazine Award for this single-topic issue in 2002.
