Jill Seelig Promoted at O, The Oprah Magazine

Jill Seelig has been promoted from vice president and publisher of O, The Oprah Magazine to senior vice president, publisher and chief revenue officer.

A statement from Hearst Magazines about the move:

In her nearly 10 years as publisher, Jill has had many great successes and this year, in a challenging marketplace, she and her team delivered market share gains in their competitive set, while retaining rate integrity for the year. An innovative and creative leader, she has built O Mag into one of the most successful magazines in the industry.

O Magazine Announces O You! Event in Atlanta

O You! is O magazine’s major event, where the magazine comes to life with a series of seminars and workshops by the magazine’s most popular contributors, hosted by O Editor-at-Large Gayle King. Publisher Jill Seelig tells FishbowlNY that about 5000 women will be attending this year’s conference on October 15 in Atlanta, Georgia, where the magazine has hosted events before. “We absolutely love it!” she said.

Contributors you can expect to see there include Suze Orman, Dr. Oz, Nate Berkus, Martha Beck, Donna Brazile, Peter Walsh, Bob Green, Adam Glassman, and Val Monroe. The program will also include content from Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

“For the first few years of the magazine’s life, we were doing events with Oprah herself,” Seelig said. “Her schedule has obviously become busier, but the contributors to this magazine have become celebrities in their own right. We really saw value in bringing them together and allowing the readers to interact with them. The impetus was really to give our readers more access to these contributors that they’ve come to know and love.”
