Traditional Home Names Former Condé Exec As Publisher

Amy Churgin spent 8 years at Architectural Digest

A month after losing Beth Fuchs Brenner to the new Domino, Traditional Home is getting a new publisher. Meredith has tapped former Condé Nast exec Amy Churgin to lead advertising at the shelter magazine.

Churgin spent eight years as vp, publisher of Condé Nast's Architectural Digest, launching The Architectural Digest Home Design Show. After a brief stint as vp, publisher of Gourmet in 2007, Churgin moved over to the Condé Nast Media Group. She was let go in 2008 in a company-wide restructuring. Since then, Churgin has been the president and CEO of Executive Coaching.

Fuchs Brenner left Trad Home in September to become chief revenue officer of the newly created Domino Media Group. (She was the founding publisher of Condé Nast’s original Domino from its launch in 2004 until it was shuttered in 2009.) Between January and September of this year, Traditional Home’s ad pages fell approximately 9 percent compared with the same period a year prior.
