By Kathy Savitt, CMO and Head of Media

Yahoo Media, including Yahoo’s new Digital Magazines, are comprised of some of the media industry’s strongest editorial and publishing talent, and today I’m happy to announce our newest addition, Global Editor-in-Chief, Martha Nelson.  Martha joins us on August 17th and will be based in our New York office, reporting to me. 

As an accomplished editor, proven brand innovator and media veteran, Martha adds to Yahoo’s established media business to continue to elevate our world-class products and journalism. In January 2014, we launched our first Digital Magazines and have since built 13 in the United States and 30 globally, which are rapidly rising to the top of their categories. With her proven track record of building successful brands as the founding editor of InStyle and for the growth of People (and into a globally recognized brand, I’m excited to work with Martha to further grow our Digital Magazines.

Most recently, Martha was the first female editor-in-chief of Time Inc., where she oversaw the editorial content for the media company’s 21 brands.  She has received many accolades for her outstanding work, including “Editor of the Year” by Adweek and Forbes Most Powerful Women three years in a row.  She is a trustee of both the National Trust for Historic Preservation and The Actors Fund, serves as a judge for the Peabody Awards.

Study Says Apple Still Leading Tablet for Digital Readers

Mequoda released stats from their 2013 Tablet Study around Digital Magazines. 

Of the findings:

  • 23% of survey respondents read digital magazines on tablet as opposed to print, but expects this to rise to 65% by 2020.
  • 13% of tablet users admitted to buying a single issue magazine or subscription on their device in the last 30 days
  • Two-thirds (67%) of tablet users now consider digital books to be a more trustworthy source of information than the word of friends and family.

The above graphic speaks to the tablets these digital readers owned. Apple still leads the charge here with a resounding 62% with Amazon taking second place at a distant 26%

Original source:


I do not know how many of you ladies in the US have library cards and use your library, but in my library system we have this great database/app that admin purchased called “ZINIO”. It allows users to download and read magazines that the library system has a subscription to that they receive as a hard copy.  

And, lo and behold, I forgot that I had a notification set up on GQ Mag, and I just received one for the November issue. So, now I have Mr. Hiddleston in those beautiful suits to look at anytime I want. Since it is digital, you can keep the issue in your library for as long as you want. Plus, you can go back and find older issues I believe.

There is an app as well for mobiles and tablets, but you have to pick your library and set up emails and passwords for both Zinio and your library system. 

You can zoom in and get the text bigger to read as it can be scrunched up on a tablet. Just take your fingers and open the screen wider. On a PC, there are buttons on the side that you can use to zoom in, or go to the table of contents which I used.  I then zoomed in to read the text and the clothing manufacturers at the bottom. 

The library system here really has their stuff together on technology.
