Ad Age has lavished praise on Marie Claire and Josh Tyrangiel, naming them magazine of the year and editor of the year, respectively. Marie Claire was honored for record setting ad pages in four issues, and for expanding its reach with new products.
“With Chanel as a partner it launched the Backstage Beauty Trends iPad App and Marie Claire @Work, which debuted last year as a saddle-stitched supplement, came back in 2012 with bigger, perfect-bound issues this May and September,” explains Ad Age. Driving that success isNancy Berger Cardone, Marie Claire’s publisher and Ad Age’s publisher of the year.
While Marie Claire took home those honors, Tyrangiel — the editor-in-chief of Bloomberg Businessweek — has to be happy about being named editor of the year. Tyrangiel believes his writers make him and the magazine look good. “I like that we have journalists who really want to do stories that ask very difficult questions that are sometimes in conflict with the people that we cover,” said Tyrangiel.
