Diane Sawyer’s Clinton Interview Draws 6 Million Viewers (TVNewser)
According to preliminary Nielsen data, Diane Sawyer’s interview with Hillary Clinton averaged 6.079 million viewers in the 9 p.m. ET hour Monday night. Sawyer had the first interview with Clinton as the former Secretary of State began her press tour for Hard Choices, out Tuesday. FishbowlDC ABC led CBS and NBC in viewers for the hour. On top in ratings Monday night was Fox, which aired 24 and averaged 6.333 million viewers in the 9 to 10 p.m. hour. Deadline Hollywood However, the interview drew a 1.0 in the demo, finishing last in the 9 p.m. hour among the Big 4 networks. CNN Clinton also appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America Tuesday to promote her book. Hard Choices is about Clinton’s years as President Barack Obama’s first secretary of state, which she stepped away from early last year. In her ABC appearances, she honed what is likely to be her book tour message — one of a thoughtful diplomat who is prepared to reintroduce herself to voters, especially women. With her book lining the walls of booksellers nationwide, Clinton also stopped at a Barnes & Noble in Manhattan Tuesday for her first book signing of the two-week tour. NBC News While Clinton has been traveling the country doing paid speeches in recent months, this book tour will put her on a much more rigorous — and campaign-like — schedule. She will visit at least 15 different cities over the next two weeks, including Washington, Philadelphia, Seattle, Los Angeles, Kansas City and Austin. Plus, she is doing a host of television interviews to promote the book, including with NBC News, CBS News, CNN and Fox News.

Fortune and Money Launch New Sites, Separate From CNNMoney

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 9.31.41 AMAfter many years living under the same digital roof, Fortune and Money have finally grown up and left CNNMoney.com behind. Say hello to Fortune.com and Money.com.

In the past Time Inc. lumped Fortune and Money content under the CNNMoney.com site, which did little to promote those brands. “For Fortune and Money to not really have robust digital brands might have been okay in 2005, but it’s less okay once you’re out of the oughts,” Money’s editor, Craig Matters, explained to TechCrunch.

Not only that, but with Time Inc. spinning off from Time Warner, the time had come to separate the trio.

As you might guess, Fortune.com will take a more serious approach to things, while Money.com will be “a little more fun and a little more playful,” added Matters. The former will post about 90 new pieces a day, while the latter will post about 30.

Co-Owner of Philadelphia Inquirer Dies in Plane Crash (Philly.com)
Lewis Katz, 72, co-owner of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com, died Saturday night in the crash of a private jet at a Massachusetts airfield. All seven people aboard were killed when the Gulfstream IV crashed about 9:40 p.m. as it was departing Hanscom Field in Bedford for Atlantic City International Airport, said a Massachusetts Port Authority spokesman. Boston Globe The plane exploded in a blast that sent a fireball and a large plume of black smoke into the air, said Bedford resident Jeff Patterson, 43, who lives beside the runway. The flames rose 60 feet in the air, he said. His 14-year-old son, Jared, said the explosion rattled the house. Bloomberg Katz and H.F. “Gerry” Lenfest won control of the Inquirer and its sister publication at a court-ordered auction four days earlier. A native of Camden, N.J., Katz was increasingly involved with his philanthropic giving. In May, Temple University announced it would name its medical school after Katz, who told the Inquirer that while his mother wanted him to be a doctor, he couldn’t stand the sight of blood. CNN Katz was formerly the principal owner of the NBA’s New Jersey Nets and the NHL’s New Jersey Devils. He was a shareholder of the Nets, the New York Yankees and the YES Network at the time of his death. New York Daily News The Yankees honored long-time minority owner Katz in the Bronx with a moment of silence before the national anthem on Sunday at the Stadium. Katz will be remembered for his hot-and-cold relationship with George Steinbrenner. NPR / The Two-Way Drew Katz, Lewis’ son, said in a statement that his father’s sudden death has brought “an incomprehensible amount of grief.” He added: “My father was my best friend. He taught me everything. He never forgot where and how he grew up, and he worked tirelessly to support his community in countless ways that were seen and unseen. He loved his native city of Camden and his adopted home of Philadelphia.” Read more

Money Launches on Tablets

The first download features content from the December issue (tips on where to invest, which jobs will be big next year and more) and additional tablet-only articles.

Fiscal Times Will Have Powerhouse Of Journos, Content

jackie.jpgNow see, this is the kind of publication we hope to see more of in 2010: The Fiscal Times, set to launch next year, will be an online-only entity that “will aim to drive the conversation surrounding our nation’s most pressing economic issues.”

Sure, there are plenty of economic blogs out there right now, but there are two things that make us excited about The Fiscal Times. One is its content sharing agreement: the news org already has a deal with The Washington Post, and is working on arrangements with other publications, much in the way that The Business Insider has done. Secondly, The Fiscal Times really has culled some of the best financial reporters and editors: Ann Reilly Dowd, formerly of Fortune and Money; Elaine Povich from The Chicago Tribune and Newsday; Dan Morgan, an ex-investigative reporter for The Washington Post and Eric Pianin, a 28-year veteran of The Washington Post. What’s more, TFT’s editor-in-chief is Jackie Leo (at left), who formerly held the same position at Reader’s Digest and was editorial director of Consumer Reports.

With this group, it finally makes sense why the organizations that are sharing content would actually want to take articles from The Fiscal Times, and not the other way around.

Says one of the founders of the publication, Peter G. Peterson, “The Fiscal Times is a new entity whose time has come, an independently supported publication comprised of top journalists and opinion makers covering the critical economic issues of our time.” We might actually believe him.

Time Inc. Closes Door on Buyouts Today

6a00d83455e65969e20120a653371f970b-320wi.jpgAs People magazine celebrates Johnny Depp as the “Sexiest Man Of The Year” (again), everything is not well in the state of People‘s publisher Time Inc. The company is still looking to trim $100 million from its budget through layoffs and buyouts, which could include up to 90 editorial positions at Fortune, Sports Illustrated, Time magazine and Money.

According to Keith Kelly in today’s New York Post, layoffs at Time are only a hair away, as the publisher should find out today how many people from their titles have stepped forward to accept buyouts.

Kelly already has the name of one high-ranking staff member who is gracefully bowing out of the competition: Fortune managing editor Steve Koepp, who has worked at Time Inc. for 29 years, will be taking one of the buyout offers. Another top Time Inc. editor, Time.com managing editor Josh Tyrangiel, has also removed himself from the staff, by accepting the top editor position at BusinessWeek. Fortune is looking to layoff 40 staffers compared to 12 at Time magazine, Kelly reports. (We’re hearing the number at Fortune might actually be closer to 25.)

An Inside Look At Time Inc.’s Assignment Detroit

Earlier this week, we got a chance to chat with Steven Gray via Skype. Gray is a Time magazine correspondent based in Time Inc.‘s new Detroit bureau, established earlier this year in a house in the Motor City.

Gray is the only person living full time in the house, but many reporters from across the company come and go to work on stories as part of Assignment Detroit. The project is year-long commitment to living in and reporting from the city, with reports appearing in various Time Inc. publications and Web sites, including Time magazine, Time.com, Fortune, Fortune.com, CNNMoney.com, Sports Illustrated, SI.com, Money and Essence magazine.

Gray gave us some background on the project, talked about what he’s been working on and told us what it’s like to live and work in the house/bureau. In the clip above, he talks about covering Detroit and blogging for Time.com. “Detroit offers one of the few places in the country where I can write about all of the issues that I care about personally, in terms of writing about society and politics and business and the economy,” Gray said. “So why not Detroit?”
