Condé Nast Promotes Execs, Awards Top Publishers

lou cona.jpgJust over three months after a massive restructuring, Condé Nast seems to be well on the way to recovery — if the announcement of three executive promotions and publishers’ awards doled out last night at an annual Florida meeting are any indication.

Lou Cona (pictured at right), senior VP of the Condé Nast Media Group, has been promoted to executive vice president of the group, while publishers Laura McEwan of Teen Vogue and Howard Mittman of Wired (at right) have been given the additional titles of vice president.

“And in perhaps an indication, if not a wholehearted endorsement, of where the publishing world’s future lies, Townsend looked beyond the usual suspects for Publisher of the Year, giving the honor to Drew Schutte, chief revenue officer of Condé Nast Digital, who oversees such digital properties as newyorker.com, luckymag.com and glamour.com, which saw significant revenue growth over 2008. The Corporate Executive of the Year prize went to Robert Sauerberg, president of Condé Nast Consumer Marketing.”

Sauerberg has been working on the digital publishing consortium between several magazine publishers, including Condé, Hearst, Time Inc., Meredith and News Corp., and has been seeking other forms of revenue for the company, including licensing agreements.

However(!) that isn’t going to stop everyone from talking about it endlessly &#151 apparently it’s the new ‘web is killing print’ and/or ‘Google is killing journalism’ conversation. To wit: over at the NewYorker.com James Surowiecki picked up on Felix Salmon‘s post about why The Atlantic article that started the NYT end times ball rolling makes very little sense.

The New York Times is not a small newspaper. It has an enormous display-advertisement inventory, and sells most of it at high rates. It’s also incredibly well placed to go national, as smaller papers close, and become a replacement for people who’ve lost their local paper and who shudder at the prospect of ever reading USA Today.

Meanwhile over at Poynter Online Rick Edmonds concurs that the story has “flunked the basic math.”
