Tina Brown

magazine publisher
Born: 11/21/1953
Birthplace: Maidenhead, England

Christina Hambley Brown graduated from St. Anne's College, Oxford University, in 1974. After working as a reporter for several publications, she was named editor of the Tatler magazine at the age of 25. Brown rejuvenated the publication, vastly increasing circulation. In 1984, she became editor of the American monthly magazine Vanity Fair. During her eight years as editor, Brown pioneered celebrity journalism and became one of the most visible magazine editors in the country. In 1992, Brown was asked to revive the flagging fortunes of the venerable literary magazine, The New Yorker. Brown introduced photography and used shorter articles, increasing circulation. The magazine still lost money. In 1999 Brown launched Talk magazine, but had to close it down in 2001. She hosts a show on CNBC, Topic A with Tina Brown and writes a column for The Washington Post Style section. She and her husband, Harold Evans, who was the editor at The London Times and editorial director at U.S. News & World Report, have two children.
