Money Launches on Tablets

Money magazine has launched on tablet devices, including the iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Nook and Nook Color, and Kindle Fire. Print subscribers can view the content for free, and the magazine is offering non-subscribers a 30 day free trial here.

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?”

Time Inc. Launches Assignment Detroit

TimeAssignmentDetroitLogo.jpgOur colleagues have a story today about Time Inc.‘s newest initiative Assignment Detroit.

According to the company, the project is year-long commitment to living in and reporting from the city of Detroit with reports from the Motor City 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.

As part of this initiative, Time Inc. purchased a house in Detroit to serve as its headquarters throughout the year-long project. We’ve heard that Steven Gray is currently living in the house full-time while he works as a correspondent for Time and Time.com, and Rick Tetzeli, the executive producer of Assignment Detroit, will be spending a few nights a week there. As the project progresses, various editors and writers will likely stay at the house from time to time.

And speaking of Gray, he has already started posting on Time.com’s “Detroit Blog.” In one of his first posts, Letter from Detroit, he explains a little bit about the new project:

“Our goal here on The Detroit Blog isn’t to rehash clichéd stories about the region’s problems. Some of that’s unavoidable. But we’re more interested in exploring key questions, like: What will it take for Detroit, and the region, to rebound? And who’s developing the ideas that are best positioned to make that turnaround succeed? Let us know what you think. And stay tuned.”

We will.

Time Inc. To Let You Make Your Own Magazine

i123735162011743456027.jpgWe all remember a few years back when Time named ‘You’ the person of the year. Well, now it looks like Time Inc. is experimenting with something called ‘Mine.’ The AP is reporting that the company is experimenting with a customized magazine entitled ‘Mine,’ which will combine “reader-selected sections from eight publications as it tries to mimic in printed form the personalized news feeds that have become popular on the Internet.” Emphasis ours.

This is how it will work: “Readers can select five titles from eight published by subsidiaries of Time Warner Inc. and American Express Co.: Time, Sports Illustrated, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Money, In Style, Golf, and Travel + Leisure.

Editors will pre-select the stories that make it into every biweekly issue, and readers won’t have the option of changing the picks from issue to issue.” All the details are here. Also the magazine is free (for the first 31,000 subscribers) but will “align readers with the branding message that its sole advertising partner, Toyota Motor Corp.” So perhaps not the solution to the advertising woes of the print world, but interesting nonetheless.
