CJR is a nonprofit entity and relies on fundraising to fund its
operations. Donors to CJR include George Soros' Open Society
In August 2007, Mike Hoyt, the executive editor of CJR since 2003,
said the magazine's income in 2007 would exceed expenses by about
$50,000, with estimates of a $40,000 surplus in 2008. Hoyt attributed
the surpluses to a mix of some staff cuts, such as not replacing three
editors who left, and fundraising increases. Donations to the CJR in
the past three years have included about $1.25 million from a group of
news veterans headed by former Philadelphia Inquirer executive editor
As of mid-2007, the CJR had an eight-person staff, an annual budget of
$2.3 million, and a paper circulation of approximately 19,000,
including 6,000 student subscriptions. Subscriptions to an Internet

In 2016, Kyle Pope, who had served as the editor in chief of The New
York Observer, was announced as the new editor and publisher of CJR,
replacing Liz Spayd, when she was announced as the sixth public editor

Pope has assumed a leadership role in the discussion of the
appropriate responses professional members of the media and press
ought to make regarding the actions of Donald J. Trump during his
campaign for and following election as president of the United States
that attempt to undermine the constitutional freedom of the press. On
July 24, 2017 in Washington D.C., Pope addressed the House Judiciary
Committee bipartisan Forum on Press Freedoms about their inquiries.
His remarks also provided advice about responsible reactions and
actions by others among the public and government to the issue.
