Garett Sloane Jumping from New York Post to Adweek

ADweekLogoThe move takes effect Wednesday.

At the New York Post, Sloane was a technology reporter. For Adweek, he will continue to patrol the same beat as a staff writer, focusing on major technology companies like Twitter, Google, Apple and Facebook.

One of Sloane’s latest contributions to the Post was a fun October 4 item about a company that benefited greatly from last week’s marquee IPO announcement:

What a bunch of stock twits!

Shares of Tweeter Home Entertainment, a Boston-based consumer electronics chain that filed for bankruptcy in 2007, soared Friday in a case of mistaken identity on Wall Street.

Joe Ripp, Time Inc.’s New CEO, Willing to Sell Brands

Joe Ripp was named Time Inc.’s new CEO just yesterday, and he’s already talking about making deals. When asked if some of the company’s brands would be worth more to a buyer, Adweek reports that Ripp replied “That’s a question we should all be asking ourselves.”

Does this mean a reconnection with Meredith Corp., the Midwestern magazine giant? We’re thinking yes. When those talks broke off, Stephen Lacy, Meredith’s CEO, admitted that the company badly wanted the deal (Meredith wanted People and InStyle, but balked when Time Inc. wanted to include SI, Time and Fortune) to go through, and would be open to talking at a later date. “We’d love the opportunity as their spinoff transaction progresses to see if there is something we could do together downstream,” he explained at the time.

Heads up Time Inc. staffers. Iowa isn’t so far away after all.

Erica Bartman and Alison Fahey Out at Adweek

Erica Bartman and Alison Fahey, Adweek’s publisher and associate publisher, have both been cut from the magazine. The New York Post reports that Adweek’s vice president of circulation Madeline Krakowsky and senior vice president Rory McCafferty have also been let go.

Bartman had been publisher of Adweek since 2010. Prior to that she served as associate publisher of WWD for a brief period. She was also associate publisher of Vogue for eight years.

Fahey had been with Adweek since 1992, when she joined as a reporter. She was named news editor a year later, and also served as the magazine’s editor-in-chief, editorial director and executive director of content.

Condé Nast and The Atlantic Dominate Adweek’s 2012 ‘Hot List’

The winner’s of Adweek’s annual Hot List are now available online, but here’s a quick summary of the print category: Condé Nast and The Atlantic are doing good things.

Six Condé magazines took home awards — such as GQ getting the “Hottest Magazine for Men” nod and Bon Appétit taking the “Favorite Destination for Foodies” honor — the most of any big publishing house. Other Condé titles taking home Hot List awards include Condé Nast Traveler, Self, Golf Digest and Allure.

The Atlantic was the other big winner. It was named the “Best Magazine to be Seen Reading on The Subway” and Jay Lauf and James Bennet were named publisher and editor of the year, respectively.

Adweek Launches iPad App

Adweek has come to the iPad. The magazine’s app is powered by Adobe and comes equipped with all the content found in the print version, plus interactive features, expanded photo galleries, the “Ad of The Week,” and more.

Robert Newman, a creative director who oversaw the launch of Reader’s Digest’s iPad app, lent a helping hand to Nick Mrozowski and Lisa Granatstein, Adweek’s creative director and managing director, respectively.

“We had a top notch team working to seamlessly extend and enhance the experience of Adweek onto the iPad.” said Jim Cooper, executive editor of Adweek, in a statement. “This reinvention allows us to evolve at pace with the media we cover.”

The app is slick, but costly. Non-subscribers can enjoy it for $79.99 per year, $7.99 per month, or $4.99 per individual issue. You can also drop $99.99 per year for a print subscription, which includes access to the app.

Former Village Voice Cartoonist, Stan Mack Re-Releases American Revolution Book

Before following someone on Twitter, it was all about the “hard copy.” For twenty years, Stan Mack was the cartoonist at The Village Voice with his popular comic strip, “Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies.”

In 1994, Mack started branching out into the literary world. After dabbling in children’s books, his first major publication was born. Now 18 years later, and after writing and illustrating several books, Mack is ready to re-release that publication.

This selection is entitled Taxes, Tea Party, and Those Revolting Rebels: A History in Comics of the American Revolution. In the 1950s, Arthur Miller used the backdrop of McCarthyism as an allegory to write The Crucible about the 17th Century witchhunt.

In the same way, Mack was inspired to explore our country’s founding based on what he saw covering the riots at Tompkins Square Park in the 1980s for The Voice.

“There was something about that experience, watching the clash between the various groups and it kind of just got a little bit out of control,” Mack tells FishbowlNY. “What came out it was the beginning of a study of rights of freedom, starting at the beginning of the country.”
