The Atlantic Names Bill Mulvihill Associate Publisher

The Atlantic today named Vanity Fair’s national advertising director Bill Mulvihill its next associate publisher. The last person in the role was Hayley Romer who currently serves as Atlantic publisher and VP.

In that role, he’ll lead its global sales team and advertising across platforms.

“The Atlantic is a brand I’ve long admired, and joining the team feels like a dream career move,” said Mulvihill in the announcement. “It has evolved into a multi-platform category leader that isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo and is leading the way in “best in class” content and brand marketing programs.”

Prior to joining VF, Mulvihill served as the East Coast advertising director for Entertainment Weekly, and has been in sales for The Week, Cookie magazine, and The Chicago Tribune.

In July, The Atlantic announced record growth for newsstand sales and website traffic.

Scott Stossel on The Atlantic’s Success, Obstacles

coverThe Atlantic editor Scott Stossel recently spoke to Nieman Fellow Rachel Emma Silverman on his outlet’s online and print successes and obstacles in a changing media landscape.

The two discussed a variety of topics including writer salaries, the hiring of big names, and gender and racial parity at the outlet.

On going fully-digital:

“My hope is that we’ll continue to get enough print advertising to invest in the print product. But I’m platform agnostic. In fact, if we could suddenly convert our 500,000 print subscribers—all of them pay, even though all the content is free on the Web—to digital subscribers and scrap the print magazine, our bottom line would be so much better. We could pay writers more because we wouldn’t be paying for printing and mailing. But we can’t force the issue because we’ve got $10 million worth of print subscribers.”

Fortune Unveils its 50 Most Powerful Women in Business

mpwFortune today unveiled its list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business, spanning women leaders in media, technology, finance, and consumer products.

It includes Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook at #10, Marissa Mayer, CEO and president of Yahoo at #16, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki at #19, Bonnie Hammer, chairman of NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Group at #41, and Gracia Martore, president and CEO of the McLean-based Gannett at #43.

Fortune‘s Jennifer Reingold writes of this year’s 17th annual list, that, “Today eight of our top 10 MPW lead large industrial, tech, and consumer products companies. It’s a long way from our original 1998 list, on which, we noted at the time, most members ‘came from industries with a premium on creativity,’ such as advertising, media, and publishing, with ‘no top women at blue-chip firms.’ Creativity is still a requirement for success, of course, but you no longer have to work in a ‘creative’ industry to advance as a woman.”

This week, we propose the latest issue of POLITICO Magazine, that highlights the POLITICO 50 – “important people changing American politics through the power of ideas,” writes John Harris in his cover piece “Washington Is Not an Ideas-Free Zone. (Usually.)”

Number one on the list is Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), dubbed “the most interesting man in politics.” The son of former Rep.
