BACK ON: The contract tug-of-war is officially over and Charlotte Ronson is now "100 percent committed" to the upcoming Soapnet show, "The Fashionista Diaries." A few weeks ago, the designer's role on the show came into question after an executive producer at Go Go Luckey Productions said Ronson was off the program and another "big-name designer" was in. The producer said that "we just couldn't get a contract that worked" with Ronson. But a Soapnet spokeswoman confirmed to WWD on Monday that the designer will be on the show, which originally was described as following six assistants from Jane magazine, Flirt Cosmetics and Seventh House PR as they produce Ronson's fashion show and after party for New York Fashion Week in September. The spokeswoman added that more designers will also be featured, but declined to provide more details. "The Fashionista Diaries" will begin airing on Aug. 1. — A.W.
NOT SO FAST, BUT STEADY: Six months into the tenure of Robert Safian as Fast Company editor in chief, the magazine has moved into new digs and made a few moves at the top. Will Bourne has been promoted to executive editor from deputy editor, with outgoing executive editor Keith Hammonds moving to the role of contributing editor. Charles Fishman, formerly a senior writer who won his second Loeb Award for a Fast Company story last month, will now be editor at large. (Safian, who has been working to raise the magazine's profile, surrendered to media awards-show cliché when he called the Loebs "the Oscars of business journalism" in a press release.)
