Start spreading the news: Print is NOT dead…March 2, 2010
In what I hope is the beginning of a new trend in celebrating our magazine industry, five industry leaders teamed together to put a video promoting magazines and the power of print. Cathie Black, President of Hearst Magazines, Jack Griffin, President of Meredith National Media, Ann Moore, Chairman & CEO of Time Inc., Charles Townsend, President & CEO of Condé Nast and Jann Wenner, Chairman of Wenner Media launched their “good news” celebration video yesterday at the opening of the American Association of Advertising Agencies meeting in New York City. A long awaited step in the right direction and a great celebration of each and every one of the 9,400 print magazine titles that were distributed on the nation’s newsstands last year. Go spread the news, print is NOT dead.
