How Hearst Doubled Its Size in 5 Years, an Interview with President David Carey
June 8, 2015

I spoke with David recently about his upcoming fifth anniversary as president of Hearst Magazines and we talked about some of his most important successes, which he shared totally with his team, and about a particular failure that he assumed complete responsibility for. It was a conversation that looked back on his early years at Hearst, checked in with his present situation, and also expanded into the future of the globally-growing company.

The Great Intern Revolt
June 30, 2014

The great media-world intern revolt didn't arise from an army of underpaid fashion-closet assistants, coffee-order-takers and instant-news-rewrite bloggers suddenly storming the castle in fury.

It began when a 40-something who'd built himself a comfortable career in finance read an article in The New York Times.

In April 2010, Eric Glatt had already quit his job at AIG to pursue his first love-film. He had received certification in the art of film editing and was working as an unpaid intern on Fox Searchlight Production's film, Black Swan.

Tough times at 'Columbia Journalism Review' as an editor departs, others are laid off, funding looks shaky
May 15, 2013

In media, there are big fish and little fish. Which is why the appointment of Cyndi Stivers as editor-in-chief of AOL.com didn't create a lot of noise about what would happen to the publication she was leaving, the Columbia Journalism Review, of which she'd served as editor-in-chief for less than two years.

Time Out needs £3m from owner to stay afloat
January 14, 2010

Time Out Group said it had to seek extra funding because “liabilites exceeded its total assets” by £10.7 million on 31 December 2008. Pre-tax losses more than doubled to almost £3.1 million in 2008, despite turnover rising 13.6 per cent to £29.2 million. Net debt, including loans and overdrafts, was £8.3 million.

Mr Elliott, who founded Time Out in London in 1968, has committed himself to investing “funds of no less than £3 million to reduce bank debt” and lenders have agreed to new financing arrangements. He said the media advertising slump had hit the group.
