Episode Info:

You've probably heard this before: Today's media landscape isn't what it used to be. It's a little less shiny, it’s harder to stay relevant, and it’s much harder to hold people’s attention and really make an impact through all the noise.

But, if you've managed to do exactly that, consistently, for many years, across different publications—then you might just be someone by the name of Tina Brown. She led Vanity Fair magazine as its first female editor-in-chief, bringing the magazine back from near extinction and turning it into something glossy that mixed celebrities and glamour with news and politics in a way that nobody had really done before. She’s also the only woman to have ever edited the New Yorker. Most recently, she founded Women in the World—a summit that brings together luminaries from Michelle Obama to Meryl Streep to Oprah Winfrey.

In today's episode, Girlboss COO Neha Gandhi chats with Brown about what it was like being the boss at 25, how she dealt with the boy's club of publishing, and why it's always a good thing to employ industry veterans as well as newcomers to the field.
