Ad Age has named Cosmopolitan editor Joanna Coles Editor of The Year. Coles said Cosmo’s history keeps it relevant to readers.
“Some brands come and go, but Cosmo is still very much in the ascendancy, I think, as women’s lives open up,” explained Coles.
Coles is certainly deserving of the honor, especially since she made a point to Ad Age that she was not solely responsible for Cosmo’s success.
“I don’t want you to make me seem like a megalomaniac,” said Coles. “It’s a massive team effort.”
Also, congrats to Bon Appétit, Ad Age’s Magazine of The Year.
