McCracken leaving PC World

PC World Editor in Chief Harry McCracken announced he would leave the magazine in June.

PC World Editor in Chief Harry McCracken has announced that he will leave the magazine after 14 years. His last day will be June 2.

"I've decided to step down as editor in chief and launch a technology site of my own--one that I'll build from scratch and launch this summer," McCracken wrote on his blog. He told media publication MinOnline that the new venture would give him more hands-on time with tech products, but gave no further details.

The announcement comes just over a year after McCracken resigned his post in a dispute with management over stories that were critical of advertisers. He returned to the job after one week.
