September is Great for Several Condé Magazines

To quote Kramer, who wants to have some fun??? Because if you really want to have some fun, and you’re not just saying you want to have some fun, we have Condé Nast’s September numbers to share with you. The fun part comes in recognizing that it was a great September for the publishing house.

Five Condé brands — W, Bon Appétit, Allure, Teen Vogue and Glamour posted their biggest September in five years. Each saw a double digit increase in ad pages compared to last year, with Glamour leading the way with 35 more than 2012; an 18 percent gain. Bon Appétit wasn’t too far behind, with 30 more pages than last Sepetmber, good for a 49 percent jump.

Vogue, of course, was the leader for Condé. Its 665 ad pages is only five more pages than last September, but no matter — the latest Vogue was good enough to be the second biggest issue in its 121-year history.

More Condé Video Channels are On Their Way

Condé Nast already has digital video channels for GQ and Glamour, so if you’re a fan of those, we have good news for you: There’s more on their way. WWD reports that channels for Vogue and Wired will launch in the next couple weeks; Vanity Fair’s will debut in June; and by the end of the year, Teen Vogue, epicurious.com and style.com will have their own channels.

The new channels will be much like GQ and Glamour’s, in that they’ll try to emulate TV:

Vogue’s digital channel, to debut shortly after the Costume Institute Gala on Monday, will in all feature ten non-scripted Web series, including behind the scenes footage of events like the Met Ball; a cooking series with the model Elettra Wiedemann; a documentary-style chronicle of designers competing for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund — it is called ‘The Fund’ — and ‘Vogue Jeanius,’ a series on denim trends. Programming on Wired includes ‘Codefellas,’ an animated scripted series and ‘The Window,’ about engineering stories.

Everyone will tell you that the future of the web is video, so this is a smart move by Condé. As with anything though, if the content isn’t good, people won’t care. That’s going to be the challenge: Presenting quality programming. That’s easier said than done, as you can see by checking the cable listings. Lord knows we don’t need another Married to Medicine.

Teen Vogue Goes with Two Justin Bieber Covers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Teen Vogue
is looking to capitalize off of Justin Bieber’s hormonal outbursts of late by publishing two covers featuring the pop artist. Not only does Bieber show off his hilarious hair (pro tip my man: Dylan McKay did it better) but inside, WWD reports that he reminds everyone that he’s Justin Bieber, so he does what he wants.

“I don’t need to address every speculation,” he explains. “Remember when Cam’ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn’t even respond. Why didn’t he respond, because he’s Jay-Z.”

Stop it.

Jason Wagenheim Shifts to Teen Vogue

Last week Jason Wagenheim was abruptly booted as Publisher of Glamour after only three months. The day after the dismissal Wagenheim insisted he was staying at Condé Nast, and we now know that he indeed is — as Publisher of Teen Vogue.

Ad Age reports that he is taking the job from Sabine Feldmann, who has been Vice President and Publisher of Teen Vogue since April of last year. There is no word what the future holds for Feldmann, but sources are speculating that she’ll end up at Details, which has been without a Publisher since Paul Jowdy left. This would be odd though, because David Hamilton was promoted to fill Jowdy’s spot.

We’ll keep you posted when we hear how things shake out.

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.

mittman.jpgToday, we learned of three promotions within the company. 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.

laura headshot[1].jpgWhat’s more CEO Charles Townsend also presented awards at an event last night during the company’s annual publishers’ trip to Key Largo, Fla. (The trip itself is proof of more optimistic times; last year’s publishers’ meeting took place in NYC.) Reports WWD:

“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.

After the jump, the official announcement from Condé Nast about the three promotions.

Rolling Stone Expands Sales Team

3letter.lrg.jpgRolling Stone has had a tough couple of years: it downgraded the size of its mag, lost staffers, and hedged so long in making a viable Web presence that by the time Jann Wenner took back RollingStone.com, it was too little, too late.

But 2010 is looking up for the venerable music title, with enough cash trickling back in that Wenner could afford to hire Michael Wolfe , a veteran of GQ and Rodale‘s Best Life, as the newest associate publisher of sales.

Joining Wolfe will be Tracy Monahan, formerly of Details and Teen Vogue, as the associate publisher of marketing.

Full press release after the jump.

Lucky Publisher Gina Sanders Picked To Lead Fairchild

PHOTO of Gina.jpgIt didn’t take long for Condé Nast to find a replacement for Richard Beckman. The magazine publisher has dipped into its own pool of publishers and picked Lucky publisher Gina Sanders to lead the Fairchild Fashion Group, which publishes Women’s Wear Daily.

Sanders joined Lucky in 2008 from Teen Vogue, where she was also publisher, during a major restructuring at Condé. She started her career at the publishing house more than 20 years ago, at House & Garden and went on to work at Details and Gourmet before Teen Vogue.

Sanders is replacing Beckman, who left the company last week to join newly formed media company e5 Global Media, starting on February 1.

Full release after the jump.

Marie Claire Publisher Plagemann Jumps To Vogue, Florio’s Role Expanded

vogue cover.jpgThe latest Condé Nast restructuring news comes to the top of one of the company’s highest profile pubs.

Susan Plagemann, the publisher at Hearst’s Marie Claire since 2004, has been named the newest publisher at Vogue, effective January 4.

Although she started her career at Condé Nast in the advertising department at Mademoiselle, Plagemann has spent most of her career at Hearst, working for Esquire, Cosmopolitan, the now-defunct Lifetime and then Marie Claire.

Plagemann will report to Thomas Florio, who formerly held the role of publisher at Vogue. His role has now been expanded to oversee Vogue and Teen Vogue, Bon Appétit and Condé Nast Traveler.

As The New York Observer reports, this seems to be part of Condé Nast’s McKinsey-ordered plan to create a more clearly defined reporting structure for publishers, through the creation of “super publishers” that now include Florio, Bill Wackermann (who now oversees Glamour, Details and Brides), Richard Beckman (Fairchild Group and W) and David Carey (Wired, The New Yorker and the golf group).
