Marie Claire Publisher Plagemann Jumps To Vogue, Florio’s Role Expanded

vogue cover.jpgThe latest Condé Nast restructuring news comes to the top of one of the company’s highest profile pubs.

Susan Plagemann, the publisher at Hearst’s Marie Claire since 2004, has been named the newest publisher at Vogue, effective January 4.

Although she started her career at Condé Nast in the advertising department at Mademoiselle, Plagemann has spent most of her career at Hearst, working for Esquire, Cosmopolitan, the now-defunct Lifetime and then Marie Claire.

Plagemann will report to Thomas Florio, who formerly held the role of publisher at Vogue. His role has now been expanded to oversee Vogue and Teen Vogue, Bon Appétit and Condé Nast Traveler.

As The New York Observer reports, this seems to be part of Condé Nast’s McKinsey-ordered plan to create a more clearly defined reporting structure for publishers, through the creation of “super publishers” that now include Florio, Bill Wackermann (who now oversees Glamour, Details and Brides), Richard Beckman (Fairchild Group and W) and David Carey (Wired, The New Yorker and the golf group).

Scrubs Enters Niche Magazine Market

scrubs-logo.jpgAs bad as the market is right now for print, niche magazines have it a little bit easier, if only because their consumer base is made up of devotees. Why else would Condé Nast be able to keep two golf magazines afloat while having to cut Gourmet? Niche markets have niche advertising, which also helps: The fashion world might be hurting overall, but the supply and demand for yachting goods has probably not taken as much of a dip in their sales records.

With that in mind, we’d like to welcome into the world the first lifestyle magazine made for nurses: Scrubs (Zach Braff not included), which will hit stores nursing apparel stores November 15, already with a paid circulation of 350,000. Says Michael Singer, CEO of Scrubs‘ founding sponsor Strategic Partners Inc., “Healthcare is one of the few sectors of the economy adding jobs.” Ironic, no?

Scrubs also has a pretty good pedigree: its editorial director is Catherine Ettlinger, a former Elle editor and managing editor at Mademoiselle.

By the way, we highly suggest you check out Scrubsmag.com, which has articles like “The First Date Checklist for Nurses” and “Top 10 Signs Your Patient May Be a Drug Seeker.”

Peggy Noonan Talks to Us About How She Got Her Start in Women’s Magazines

noonglynn.pngMore Peggy Noonan from the Time Warner Political Summit. This conversation, about how Noonan got her start at Mademoiselle as a college student who’d won a magazine writing contest, was the result of an earlier conversation we’d had about the Rosenbergs: at one point I’d mentioned that my first and strongest Rosenbergs reference came from the opening of Sylvia Plath‘s The Bell Jar — turns out Noonan had worked for the same editor at Mademoiselle that Plath had twenty years earlier. Later I asked Noonan what she thinks of the new media world college grads are encountering today: “It’s a talentocracy. Meritocracy, I’m not sure, it’s one of those debatable words, but talent? You can come from anywhere, have no credentials, but if you have humor, wit, brilliance, an ability to explain what it is…you can become an overnight blog sensation.” Full video after the jump.

A side note: Rachel Sklar and I conducted this interview in a busy hallway between panel rooms; a number of people saw us talking to Noonan and later made it a point to tell me either what big fans they were of hers (many of them, regardless of her views), or how they’d also experienced first hand how generous she is with her time.
