Jason Kontos Saunters Over to Promenade Magazine

JasonKontosPicHow’s this for a magazine audience pitch? According to the good folks at Davler Media, here’s who likes to peruse Promenade magazine:

Promenade reaches 3 million readers per issue, in four- and five-star hotel rooms, private clubs and upscale residential buildings. Readers who are highly educated, well-traveled and cultured.

Add in another half-million monthly uniques at sister website NYLuxury.com and you’ve got a choice editorial purview. One that is now going to be run by editorial director Jason Kontos (pictured), who is taking over for the departing Phyllis Singer.

Kontos, who is also (since 2006) editor-in-chief of New York Spaces magazine, is bringing along with him Judith Nasatir as executive editor. Promenade was launched 80 years ago by a group of Ivy League school grads.
