S.I. OBJECTIONS STOP POTENTIAL ACOG DEAL WITH VANITY FAIR
Published March 14, 1996
ACOG has called off talks with Conde Nast's Vanity Fair on a possible affiliation with the magazine after officials from Sports Illustrated objected, according to AD AGE. Keith Kelly reports Vanity Fair's May issue will still feature Olympic photography by Annie Leibovitz, but with no official connection. Officials at SI were apparently "rankled" when Vanity Fair Publisher Mitch Fox sent a letter to potential advertisers claiming the May issue was "officially sanctioned." Time Inc. paid $40M for SI to be Official Publication of the Games (ADVERTISING AGE, 3/11).
