Thursday night was our weekly Cotton’s Bar drinks get-together. One of our new visitors was a man who launched twelve magazines.
And in not a single case did a journalist make the move to publisher. I only know one man who did — Graham Earnshaw, formerly of Reuters, who’s now the successful publisher of the China Economic Review.
I need to talk to him again about how he did it.
Does anyone else know of any journalists who have made a transition to publisher?
The man who started the twelve magazines is now running an Internet-based business teleivion program in Japan and is in the process of expanding it to China and other Asian countries.
There’s a lot of that kind of thing going on over here — new channels, new publications, new everything spring up all around.
