Ed Wenck succeeding Jim Poyser as Nuvo ME

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Nuvo’s long-time managing editor, Jim Poyser, is heading for a new job and will be replaced by former WIBC-FM 93.1 radio personality and author Ed Wenck.

Wenck Wenck

Poyser is the new executive director of Earth Charter Indiana. He began freelancing for the alternative weekly Nuvo in 1994 and had been managing editor for 13 years.

Earth Charter is a not-for-profit that promotes pro-environmental practices statewide.

Wenck’s shift to Nuvo may surprise radio listeners, but he has a knack for writing. He penned three books, including “Know Your Zombies,” which he co-wrote with IBJ arts and entertainment editor Lou Harry.

Wenck also has contributed to Nuvo previously, including a piece last June about a woman who donated a kidney to her boyfriend.

The former stand-up comedian was co-host of the Wank & O’Brien show at Emmis Communications’ WLHK-FM 97.1 for a number of years and more recently rode the afternoon drive at WIBC. Last March he walked away from the microphone to work in sales for Emmis.

Poyser, a native of South Bend, said his interest in the environment and sustainability were piqued two years ago when Nuvo publisher/editor Kevin McKinney bought Indiana Living Green, of which Poyser was editor.

  1. From the story: "The city of Indianapolis also will consider tax incentives and funding for infrastructure required for the project, according to IEDC." Why would the City need to consider additional tax incentives when Lowe's has already bought the land and reached an agreement with IEDC to bring the jobs? What that tells me is that the City has already pledged the incentives, unofficially, and they just haven't had time to push it through the MDC yet. Either way, subsidizing $10/hour jobs is going to do nothing toward furthering the Mayor's stated goal of attracting middle and upper-middle class residents to Marion County.

  2. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  3. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  4. First off, it's "moron," not "moran." 2nd, YOU don't get to vote on someone else's rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by the US Constitution. That's why this is not a state's rights issue...putting something like this to vote by, well, people like you who are quite clearly intellectually challenged isn't necessary since the 14th amendment has already decided the issue. Which is why Indiana's effort is a wasted one and a waste of money...and will be overturned just like this has in every other state.

  5. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.
