PUBLISHING NEWS & NOTES: TIME'S LOGAN NAMED TOP EXEC OF '97
Published February 24, 1998
Time Inc. CEO Don Logan was named Publishing Exec of the Year for '97 by AD AGE in its "Best Magazines" awards section: "Mr. Logan's management style is one that marries tough demands to strong support once a new direction or project is approved and underway" (AD AGE, 2/23 issue). MORE DETAILS ON THE SOURCE: The Source's Publisher David Mays said circulation for its upcoming sports spinoff, The Source Sports, will be "about 300,000-plus." Mays: "These issues will all be different sports, not just a preview of one kind of sport" (AD AGE, 2/23 issue). CLOTHED IN CONTROVERSY? In Las Vegas, Dean Juipe commented on SI's swimsuit issue: "How does [SI] continue to get away with it? How can the world's largest and best-read weekly sports magazine continue to treat women as mindless pawns?" Juipe added that women "could have -- and still could -- put an end to this yearly charade, if only they chose to exert their power" (LAS VEGAS SUN, 2/20). In L.A., Bill Plaschke writes that SI "has changed the annual edition's focus. Good luck figuring out what that focus is." Plaschke also writes that the section with athletes and their wives "could have been called ... 'Setting The Women's Movement Back 25 Years'" (L.A. TIMES, 2/24).
