imageRobert ("Bob") Love, whose 20 years at Rolling Stone culminated in leading the biweekly to two National Magazine Awards while managing editor from 1998-2002, was hired June 4 as AARP editor-in-chief. Upon his June 24 start, Love will oversee all editorial content creation and management for the bimonthly AARP, which goes to 22.7 million members of the namesake organization originally formed to serve retirees…During his career, he has worked with such distinguished writers as T.C. Boyle, P.J. O'Rourke, Scott Turow and the late Hunter S. Thompson.

Looks like chunks of the magazine might become relevant, irreverent, entertaining.



P.S.  That NostraChuckus is pretty good, ain’t he?
