Once again, we’re at another distinctive threshold for magazine media companies. The year 2012 for many was a chance to finally put some capital to work and look forward to some real traction on strategies that were shelved as cost management hogged the front seat for a while. In more than a few of the cases collected here, publishing leaders are describing very different companies that are emerging from these new strategies. Some are focused on new, comprehensive ways to better connect buyers and sellers and others are citing major changes in audience behavior as an impetus for change. Either way, next year is looking like the year publishers see how their repositionings take hold.
