Bloomberg Businessweek Captures National Magazine Award

May 15, 2012

Bloomberg Businessweek has won the 2012 National Magazine Award for General Excellence in the general-interest category, edging out The New Yorker, New York, GQ and Vice.

The National Magazine Awards are the premiere awards for magazine journalism sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Editors and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

This is the first National Magazine Award we have won since Businessweek was  acquired by Bloomberg in 2009 and relaunched under the direction of editor Josh Tyrangiel. The last National Magazine Award General Excellence win for Businessweek was in 1996.

Bloomberg Businessweek is thriving and continuing to surprise under Editor Josh Tryangiel, and his talented staff.  And readers and advertisers have taken notice.

International circulation has doubled and individually paid circulation has grown 13 percent between 2009 and 2011. We now have over 100,000 subscribers to the Bloomberg Businessweek+ app, launched in April 2011 and which just days ago won a Webby Award in the News (Tablet & All Other Devices) category.  Advertising also continues to grow, with the magazine posting a 23 percent increase in advertising pages since its acquisition by Bloomberg.

Congratulations to all!
 
 

 Norman Pearlstine is chairman of Bloomberg Businessweek.
