PRNewser: An interview with Matthew Bishop, The Economist‘s New York bureau chief.

AgencySpy: Time Out New York launches new “Sex and Dating” section, putting dating and sex-related ads up front and center, and in with the editorial content.

BayNewser: Later this year, the FTC will hold a workshop series dedicated to the future of journalism

Ad Age: Some publishers are releasing circulation numbers in advance of the Audit Bureau of Circulations big semi-annual report, which is coming out soon. Many magazines reported declines in newsstand and subscriptions, but there were some gains: Saveur‘s single-copy sales rose 4 percent during the first half of the year and More magazine’s newsstand held steady.

New York Times: And speaking of More, the magazine for women older 40 seems to be penalized by advertisers for its older audience. “The average More reader makes about $93,000, around $30,000 more than the average for Vogue, Allure or Harper’s Bazaar…But More has hardly a luxury ad in it.”
