NBC News Freelancer Diagnosed With Ebola (TVNewser)
A 33-year-old American freelance cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia has tested positive for Ebola and will be flown back to the U.S. for treatment. NYT As a precaution, NBC News ordered the production team working with the cameraman, which includes Dr. Nancy Snyderman, the network’s top medical correspondent, to return to the U.S. and enter quarantine for 21 days. Mashable The 33-year-old freelancer tested positive for the deadly disease on Thursday while on assignment in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, NBC News said in an emailed statement. The cameraman, whose identity is being withheld by NBC at the request of his family, was working with a three-person crew working alongside Snyderman. THR On Tuesday, Snyderman’s report from a Liberian hospital aired on NBC’s Nightly News, where the network’s chief medical editor narrated a video dispatch on the disease. In the video, Snyderman can be seen donning protective gear as she reported from an “Ebola Isolation Unit” at the medical area.

Catherine Gundersen Joins Marie Claire

Catherine Gundersen has been named the new managing editor of Marie Claire. Gunderson comes to the glossy from GQ, where she served as editorial business manager since last year.

Gunderson has previously served as interim managing editor at Self and Brides. Anne Fulenwider, who had worked with Gunderson at Brides, told WWD, “Catherine is fantastic… she has great energy and she’ll be a great fit.”

The move to bring Gunderson aboard is odd, considering that Nancy Gillen was just named managing editor of Marie Claire in August. Something must have been amiss at the glossy.

Vogue China EIC: Our Only Censorship Issue is Nudity

Interesting interview with Angelica Cheung, the editor of Vogue China since Day One and previously the editor of Elle China and Marie Claire in Hong Kong.

VogueChinaOctober2014

This month marks the Condé Nast international edition’s ninth anniversary. Cheung talked with WWD‘s Amy Chung about her readers’ fondness for “classic” beauty, the mixing of Chinese and international models in the publication’s pages, and working within the country’s content constraints:

“Everything we publish has to be approved. It’s the law here. We have problems when there’s suspicion of nudity. There was one picture, people thought you could see something, but I thought you couldn’t so we retouched it a little bit, but I’m not for nudity.”

GarrisonForestMotto

Washington, who attended Maryland’s Garrison Forest high school, spoke to the Baltimore Sun about her steady, impressive rise. Her answer to how she got it started reminds of the value of perseverance:

“At Garrison Forest, every senior completes a [senior project]. I wrote to the fashion director of Cosmopolitan magazine every day for roughly two months until she agreed to let me do my [project] with her (she was a graduate of Garrison). I don’t recommend that anyone repeat my behavior.”

Marie Claire’s ‘Denim Issue’ Shows There’s Hope for Magazines

Fear not, magazine lovers of America. There is hope for the printed word after all, and it comes in the form of Marie Claire’s Denim Issue.

As Ad Age notes, the cover is designed to be “unzipped” down the middle. It’s gimmicky, yes, but you know who loves gimmicks? Advertisers!

Guess jeans — which bought the space and has its logo all over the inside of the cover — paid six figures for the ad. If a company is dumb enough to pay that much for an ad that requires consumers to destroy it, then the magazine industry is going to be fine.

Time Warner Cancels Shareholders’ Ability to Call Special Board Meeting, Guards Against Fox Acquisition (NYT / DealBook)
Time Warner is playing defense. On Monday, the company amended its corporate bylaws and removed a provision that allowed shareholders to call a special board meeting. In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Time Warner said the change was effective immediately. Variety The media company’s board approved a measure to temporarily prevent a fraction of shareholders, some 15 percent, from forcing a vote on 21st Century Fox’s $85 per-share offer, according to public filings. The so-called special meeting provision may be re-instated at the company’s 2015 shareholders meeting. Deadline Hollywood The fear was that Rupert Murdoch — or anyone — could have tried to stampede short-term investors into accepting a deal even if the board concluded that it would not serve their long-term interests. Time Warner shares were down 1.6 percent in post-market trading following disclosure of the change. THR Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox has bid about $80 billion to acquire Time Warner, but Time Warner’s board and CEO Jeffrey Bewkes have rejected the proposal. Some analysts predict that 21st Century Fox will eventually offer $100 a share for Time Warner. The conglomerate’s stock has climbed 23 percent in the past week on such speculation, and Monday it closed at $87.36. TVNewser People familiar with the original $80 billion proposal that was rejected said if 21st Century Fox took over Time Warner, it would sell CNN to prevent antitrust issues stemming from Fox News and CNN’s direct competitor relationship.
