Seventeen is the number one teen magazine in the market and Jayne has taken it to new heights, achieving tremendous advertising growth, up more than 11 percent in the first half of 2013,” Michael Clinton, Hearst Magazines’ president, marketing and publishing director, said in a statement. “Her relationships and experience in fashion and beauty are a great asset as she adds the new, style-focusedRedbook to her responsibilities.”

“Video is huge on our Web site,” Jamison said.

“Most months we have about one million video plays. We’re both creating video content off of the pages of the magazine, like beauty smarties, and creating new video content for the Web. We’re also encouraging advertisers to make videos.”
