Jim Meigs
James B. Meigs Editor-in-Chief, Popular Mechanics James B. Meigs was named editor-in-chief of Popular Mechanics in May 2004. Since his arrival, he has deepened the magazine's century-long commitment to covering the important scientific and technological issues of the day. He has also bolstered the magazine's mission of helping men achieve hands-on competence in all the technological challenges of their lives, including home, auto, outdoors and electronics. Under his tenure, PM has devoted extensive coverage to vital issues including national security, environmental concerns and alternative energy. PM was the first major media outlet to fact-check -and decisively debunk- the burgeoning conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11. That investigation ultimately grew into the acclaimed book, Debunking 9/11 Myths, which the magazine published in 2006. Meigs also instituted the annual Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Awards, which highlight achievements in science and technology that promise to change the world for the better. To help accomplish PM's diverse mission, Meigs has recruited award winning writers, photographers and illustrators. He has also overseen a total re-launch of the magazine's content-rich website, popularmechanics.com, to include hands-on videos and a top-rated weekly podcast. The reinvigorated Popular Mechanics brand is showing enormous vitality, enjoying strong increases in web traffic as well as growing newsstand sales. Prior to joining PM, Meigs had been executive editor of National Geographic Adventure. During his time there, the magazine won three National Magazine Awards. Previously, he served as editor-in-chief, vice president of Premiere from 1996 to 2000, and as a senior editor on the team that launched Entertainment Weekly. From 1987 to 1989 he edited the home technology magazine Video Review. He has also written articles for magazines including Rolling Stone, Outside and Details, as well as a technology column for Popular Mechanics.
