Rolling Stone Enjoys Strong First Quarter

According to min, Rolling Stone is off to one hell of a start in 2011, with ad pages up over 40 percent from 2010.  Publisher Matt Mastrangelo says that – at least so far – when it rains, it pours. “Increase is coming from every major category: automotive, beer/liquor, consumer electronics, fashion, and telecom.”

Other factors impacting the magazine’s strong showing? Festivals and that awesome contest allowing readers to choose who graces the cover.

And just in case you weren’t already jealous of Rolling Stone staffers: That rocket Snooki is riding is on display in the magazine’s office.
