(NEW YORK) Advertising Age's Magazine Awards 'A List' includes Harper's Bazaar, Food Network Magazine, InStyle, and Fortune, topped off by Marie Claire, which nabbed Magazine of the Year. Four print issues with record high advertising sales coupled with a recently launched iPad application and Marie Clare @Work garnered the publication the coveted title at the American Magazine Conference.
Last month Joanna Coles, who had been the editor at Marie Claire since 2006, was named editor in chief at Cosmopolitan, replacing Kate White. Anne Fulenwider, previously editor in chief of Brides, succeeded Coles. Prior to her position at Brides, Fulenwider worked as the executive editor at Marie Claire under Coles. On the business side, Nancy Berger Cardone has driven the title's ad success, so it's no surprise that Cardone nabbed Ad Age’s 'Publisher of The Year' title at the event as well. Also celebrating last night was Josh Tyrangiel, editor-in-chief of Bloomberg BusinessWeek, who was named 'Editor of the Year' thanks to his overhaul of the magazine.
