The changes at Time Inc. continue as editor-in-chief Matt Bean is out just shy of a year on the job.

Longtime EW veteran Henry Goldblatt will replace him, coming back to his old job after a year at People, according to reports.

Bean is being offered a corporate job at Time Inc.  His ousting comes less than a year after he came over from Sports Illustrated.

Reports suggest Bean clashed with EW editorial director Jess Cagle, who was Bean’s predecessor as editor-in-chief. When Cagle left that post to become the top editor at People, he was also made editorial director of EW, thus still managing Bean.

This hierarchy apparently didn’t work as reports suggest the two clashed over editorial. During the same time period, Bean’s deputy, Kristen Baldwin, bolted for Yahoo.
