Tina Brown

Tina Brown was the first woman editor of three leading US magazines. At the age of 25, soon after graduating from Oxford University, she revived Britain’s historic monthly Tatler. In 1984 she was invited to the United States to rescue the relaunched Vanity Fair. She took it from a circulation of 250,000 to 1.2 million and in 1992 became the first woman editor of The New Yorker. Subsequently, she hosted the CNBC show Topic A with Tina Brown, and wrote The New York Times No. 1 bestseller The Diana Chronicles. In 2008, she partnered with Barry Diller, chairman and chief executive officer of IAC, in the successful founding of The Daily Beast, a non-partisan, curated site for news, original reporting, book coverage and opinion.
