We’re saddened to share that Brian Light passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 19, 2020.
Brian was the co-founder and former president of Salon Magazine from 1993 to 2009 and worked as chairman until his retirement in 2016. He was an extraordinary man, great leader and dear friend of the Salon team.
“Brian was a kind, wonderful and caring man. He had the perfect blend of moral compass and business acumen. I learned everything about the business of publishing from him,” says Laura Dunphy, publisher of Salon.
He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and fellow colleagues.
