The Fader‘s Andy Cohn: ‘Great content first, figure out where it goes second’

With a bimonthly print publication, podcasts and a robust website and online store, The Fader has succeeded as a brand by allowing each of its outlets to have its own style, says Andy Cohn, president and publisher of Fader Media.

“We saw a lot of other music publications trying to become websites and just becoming very busy and very formulaic,” Cohn told Mediabistro for its latest So What Do You Do? interview. “For us, we let our website be the website and let the magazine play to its own strengths, both from a visual — design, photography — and medium- to longer-form journalism standpoint. The approach that we’ve always taken is great content first, and then figure out how and where it goes second. And we’ve always been willing to let our readership play a role in that, because we’re not going to ever be married to one medium.”

Andy Cohn Promoted at The Fader

Andy Cohn has been promoted from Executive Vice President and Group Publisher to President and Group Publisher at The Fader, Inc., the company behind The Fader magazine. Cohn has been with Fader since 2003, when he joined the team as Associate Publisher.

Rob Stone, Co-Founder of The Fader, said the promotion was a direct result of Cohn’s hard work.

“In his time with The Fader, Andy has grown the brand into an incredible multi-platform resource for the audience and the brand advertisers, while still maintaining the editorial integrity the print edition was founded upon,” said Stone. “This promotion is reflective of our accelerated increase in reach and Cohn’s smart integration of emerging technologies, and a seamless use of our social media extensions.”

Promotions and Additions to The Fader Announced

Matthew Schnipper has been promoted from Deputy Editor to Editor-in-Chief at The Fader magazine. The music publication also named Amber Bravo as Senior Editor, and Naomi Zeichner as Editor of its website.

Schnipper has been with the magazine since 2007, and during his time there it has received multiple awards. Bravo comes to The Fader as a freelancer for a few magazines, including Dwell. Zeichner was previously a regular contributor to the magazine.

Andy Cohn, Fader Media Executive Vice President and Group Publisher, said of the changes:

It was a natural progression for Matthew to take over as editor-in-chief of The Fader. He is the heart and soul of the publication and has really transformed it editorially over the years that he has been a part of it. With his new position, and the hiring of Amber and Naomi in addition to our entire edit staff, we are in a really great flow.


FishbowlNY Summer Music Preview: Who Was Your First?

With the 2007 summer concert season upon us — one marked by the heralded return of rock relics like the Police and Genesis — FishbowlNY (inspired by Concert.TV‘s tagline) asked selected media types to recount their first time … at a live show, that is. Drop us a line with your own boozy, hazy recollections, and we’ll post them here throughout the summer. And, uh, rock on.

“My first concert was Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation show in Calgary, Canada. It was so awesome! I went with my dad and for months after I wore keys on my hoop earrings just like her! I was like 10.”
— Kate Frank, US Weekly

“My first show was the Grateful Dead — ’81 I think — Nassau Coliseum. I was rather young and we went in expecting to hear “Casey Jones,” “Truckin’,” “Uncle John’s Band,” etc. Instead we got jam after jam. I didn’t know what was going on — but still loved it! This was quickly followed by Jethro Tull and The Who (on one of their many farewell tours). Was a great summer!
— Ed James, Cornerstone

“The Monkees reunion tour. Madison, Wisconsin. Seriously.”
— Jeff Bercovici, Radar

“The Ramones at SUNY Stony Brook. It scared the shit out of me.”
— Dan Bova, editor-in-chief, Stuff

“First club show was Black Uhuru at the New Ritz in NYC. First big stage show was Sinead O’Connor at Jones Beach.”
— Heather Tesoriero, Wall Street Journal

“Stephen Stills at the Spectrum in Philly. I wish I had a cooler one. My kids will be able to say Radiohead at MSG.”
— Devin Leonard, Fortune

“AC/DC, May 27, 1991, Charleston Civic Coliseum, Razor’s Edge Tour
— Michael Shimbo, founder, CONCERT.TV
