Time Inc. Chief Executive Officer
Laura Lang, hired last year to revive the struggling magazine
publisher, is forging a plan to unify its long-sparring
online and print fiefdoms.
Lang wants to give customers the ability to advertise across
all 21 of Time Inc.’s magazines, both on the Web and in print,
potentially reaching an audience of 127 million people in one
fell swoop. That’s a break from the previous strategy, where the
company typically suggested doing marketing campaigns via
specific brands -- say, the print edition of People or Time.
