FishbowlNY’s 2009 Lists: The Year’s Biggest Moves In Media

door.jpgThis year — full of flux and uncertainty about where the media is heading — has resulted in a vast number of job changes and departures across all matter of media companies and publications. In almost every field of journalism, big names have either been fired, promoted, retired, or simply moved on to more lucrative positions. Here, we take a look back at the biggest industry shakeups of 2009.

The Biggest Move in Magazines: Stephen Adler leaving BusinessWeek.
When editor Stephen Adler announced his departure from BusinessWeek this October following the magazine’s sale to Bloomberg LP, he wasn’t just making a statement, he was starting a trend. Soon he was followed by some of his former colleagues, like John Byrne and BusinessWeek‘s president Keith Fox, who decided to stay with magazine’s original parent, McGraw-Hill. (Not to mention all of those who involuntarily left the pub not long after.) It takes a lot of chutzpah to up and quit your editor gig in the middle of this turbulent media landscape, it takes even more to get your coworkers to come with you. Fortunately for Adler, he’s already landed another gig at Thomson Reuters.

Runners Up: Time.com managing editor Josh Tyrangiel comes on board as editor at Businessweek; Marie Claire‘s publisher Susan Plagemann joins Vogue; Nancy Berger Cardone of shuttered Gourmet takes Plagemann’s spot at Marie Claire; Janice Min leaves Us Weekly; Mariette DiChristina becomes Scientific American‘s first female editor-in-chief.

Gourmet Publisher Finds A Home At Marie Claire

prar01_cardone212-1.jpgNancy Berger Cardone, formerly the publisher of the much-missed Gourmet, has been named vice president and publisher of Hearst‘s Marie Claire. She replaces Susan Plagemann, who left the women’s magazine last month to take on the role of publisher at Vogue, which is owned by Cardone’s former employer, Condé Nast.

The move marks a return to women’s magazine for Cardone, who served as publisher at Condé-owned Allure for eight years before making the move to Gourmet in 2008. During her short time at the epicurean mag, Cardone helped launch the social networking site GourmetGuestList.com and exec produced the magazine’s PBS series, “Gourmet’s Adventures With Ruth.” She will no doubt be looked to at Marie Claire to further brand expansion across many platforms, like the magazine’s current partnership with “Project Runway.”

One Last Gourmet Party

gourmet.jpgWe’d like to end the week on a high note, but on this gloomy, cold October Friday in New York City, this story from The New York Observer about the last hurrah for Gourmet magazine seems fitting.

Many braved the rain last night to toast the venerable epicurean magazine, which was among the Condé Nast casualties last week. Editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl, Condé Nast editorial director Tom Wallace was there and former publisher Nancy Berger Cardone gathered at A Voce Columbus Circle to celebrate the new television series, “Gourmet’s Adventures with Ruth,” airing this Sunday on Channel 13, even though the magazine has folded.
