Former Editor-in-Chief - Tatler, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker

“A magazine—a relevant one—should be a sound, not an echo.” - Tina Brown

Tina Brown is an award-winning journalist, editor, author, and event producer. As editor-in-chief of Tatler, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker, she reinvented and reinvigorated three ailing media brands; authored the best-sellers The Diana Chronicles, a biography of the Princess of Wales, and The Vanity Fair Diaries, about her time building the iconic magazine; launched online news outlet The Daily Beast; and founded the Women in the World summits.

During each of her editorships at Tatler, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker, Tina identified ways to overhaul content to dramatically increase readership. A true media visionary, she has repeatedly proved her ability to predict "the next big thing". Tina's portfolio includes iconic works including the Vanity Fair cover featuring a nude photo of a very pregnant Demi Moore.
