The ASME has been under a bit of fire, but it still had time to announce the 2012 Magazine of The Year Finalists. As usual, there’s not much surprise, as Time, The New Yorker, Esquire, New York and Popular Mechanics were all nominated.
We’re sure all the people at the magazines are happy, but Adam Moss of New York had the best reaction to the news. “Well, everyone is very happy about it, of course,” Moss told WWD. “But we beat Popular Mechanics last week in the bowling league, so really, the Magazine of the Year thing is just gravy.”
The Magazine of The Year will be announced May 3, along with all the other Ellie finalists.
