The Riveting Experience Of Opera Comes Alive In Opera News…The Mr. Magazine™ Interview With Diane Silberstein — Publisher, Opera News

Samir Husni: Since there are no stumbling blocks, if we look at all the challenges that are facing you; what would be the biggest challenge? Is it the advertising or the circulation? Where will you put most of your effort to ensure that a year from now you can look back and say: job well done?

Diane Silberstein: We're putting forth effort in all categories. We're putting forth effort in advertising; we just changed our ad sales team. I just engaged James Elliott's company and I think they're terrific. We've engaged very, very seasoned professionals to represent us. We've just changed our circulation model and how we handle and manage our own circulation. The company we're working with is tops in their field. And we're also continuing to evolve our editorial and adding more lifestyle coverage into the magazine.

BoSacks Speaks Out: My hearty congratulations goes out to Foreign Affairs magazine.

In these trying times for most publications, Foreign Affairs has boosted both print and digital subs according to the last AAM audit. They have done this while at the same time increasing their annualized subscription price by $5, from $44.95 to $49.95.

Lynda Hammes, the publisher of Foreign Affairs, said, "The growth of Foreign Affairs in this tough climate reflects our sustained commitment to building content revenues and driving digital delivery . . . In turn, our quality circulation has also appealed to advertisers, and we are seeing a 12 percent year-over-year growth in advertising revenue."

I applaud any journalism that works, but I specifically applaud long form and thoughtful journalism. What does it mean to our industry that titles like the Economist, Foreign Affairs, Bloomberg Businessweek and many others can buck the dismal trends of our industry and do it with titles and subject matter that actually make you think? We all agree that niche publishing works. Could it be that the niche of thought is a powerful and lucrative niche? Who would a thunk it?

Where the readers are: if traditional retail outlets are a money-losing proposition for your title, the best newsstand fix may be found at affinity shops
Feb 2002

When Weight Watchers International bought back the license to Weight Watchers from Time Inc.'s Southern Progress Corp. in January 2000, the publication's one million subscribers didn't come with the package. Unwilling to relinquish precious readers, Time Inc. transfered the subs to Cooking Light.
