Tina Brown was 25
when she became editor-in-chief of England’s’ oldest
glossy, The Tatler, reviving the nearly defunct 270 year
old magazine with an attitude and style that gave it a 300 percent
circulation rise. She went on to become editor-in-chief of
Vanity Fair, and won four National Magazine Awards. In
1992 she became the first female editor of the New Yorker
where she raised circulation by 145 percent on the newsstand and
was honored with 4 George Polk Awards, 5 Overseas Press Club
Awards, and 10 National Magazine Awards, including a 1995 award for
General Excellence, the first in the magazine’s history. Ms.
Brown was awarded C.B.E. (Commander of the British Empire) from
Queen Elizabeth in 2000. She is married to Sir Harold Evans. The
couple have two children and reside in New York.
