Anthony Cenname, WSJ.’s publisher, seems to enjoy nothing more than talking about the magazine. Not that he doesn’t have a good reason. In an interview with Capital New York, Cenname revealed that WSJ. is enjoying record-breaking ad revenue year and even managed not to insult competitor T: The New York Times Style Magazine. Below are some highlights.
On the record-breaking year:
We’re up 13 percent since last year, making this the most revenue-producing year for WSJ. since launching six years ago. The ‘Innovators’ issue alone is up 47 percent compared to last year’s.
On why WSJ. is booming:
Editor-in-chief Kristina O’Neill has such a powerful sense of what’s new and exciting in the world of fashion, and advertisers want to be a part of it.
Competition keeps everyone striving to do their best work — they’re doing their thing, and we’re doing ours.
