Items From the Publishing World

A couple of items of interest from today’s New York Times. First, Katrina vanden Heuvel today takes over as publisher and general partner of The Nation from Victor Navasky. Vanden Heuvel retains the editor’s slot. (See “The Nation, Now Profitable, Has a New Commander,” by Katharine Q. Seelye). No comment from Seelye or any sources about the wisdom of one person sitting in both the editor’s and publisher’s chairs at a single publication.

Second, Julie Bosman reports, in “At Some Magazines, Men Appear to Rule the Word,” that Ruth Davis Konigsberg, a deputy editor at Glamour has been counting bylines at various popular magazines and has found glaring disparities between the numbers of men and women penning pieces in some of the nation’s leading titles, including some published by her own house, Condé Nasty.
