This week, we hear from veteran of the magazine industry Paul Rayner about his career trajectory from Dennis to LadBible to the Chelsea Magazine Company, from launching magazines to franchise models and the lessons he’s learned along the way.
In the news roundup, the team tries and fails to discuss DMGT’s latest results with a particular focus on Mail Online, whether Fortune going behind a paywall is the canary in the coalmine for other paywall plays, and whether the sale of Sports Illustrated to a non-publishing company tells us anything about the future of magazine brands. It’s snark week this week on Media Voices.
