Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round we have Entertainment Weekly taking on New York. EW went with a cover featuring select members of Orange is The New Black’s cast. We chose this cover because OINTB is a fantastic show; much better than House of Cards. Sorry everyone who disagrees! Maybe you’ll be right about something else one day.

New York Uses Eight Covers for ‘Yesteryear’ Issue

We love a good magazine cover, so we’re all in when there are a bunch of them for one issue. New York’s annual “Yesteryear” issue features a look back at the last 100 years of New York music, and eight great covers. There’s Lou Reed, Frank Sinatra, Madonna and more.

We’re partial to the Jay Z one, if only because he looks like he’s seven years old.

New York Media Adds Sales Exec

new-york-magazine-logoNew York Media, parent of New York, has named Michelle Imbrogno Miller executive director of integrated sales. This is somewhat of a homecoming for Imbrogno Miller, as she worked for New York from 1999 to 2004, serving as travel/New England director of sales. She most recently worked as integrated sales director for American Express Publishing.

“Michelle is a leader in her field, and I’m thrilled to have her joining New York Media,” said Larry Burstein, New York Media’s publisher, in a statement. “I had the pleasure of working with Michelle during her previous tenure at the company, and was impressed by her early ability to sell cross-platform. She has the ideal skill set to represent our properties to advertisers in this dynamic media landscape.”

In her new role, Imbrogno Miller will work closely with executive director of digital sales Ron Stokes.

The Cover of The Year winner will be announced next Monday, December 30.

Read New York’s ‘Year in Culture’ Issue Just for The Arguments

New York’s “Year in Culture” issue, which hits newsstands this week, is fantastic. We haven’t made it all the way through yet, but from what we’ve read, you need to buy this issue. You should also subscribe to New York, but we’ll yell at you about that later.

The Year in Culture issue is great because of the arguments you can have after reading it. While the features are excellent — we recommend the piece on Timbaland by Jessica PresslerNew York’s critics also selected the year’s best in pop, movies, TV, art and more. Here’s an example of what could happen after you’re done reading the 10 Best TV Shows list:

You: “Can you believe New York’Matt Zoller Seitz picked Breaking Bad as the third best TV show of the year? I heard he has a drinking problem.”
