Video: Cathie Black in Conversation with Liz Smith
Cathie Black, president of Hearst Magazines, made publishing history in 1979 when she became the first woman publisher of a weekly consumer magazine, New York. In 1983 she guided the successful launch of USA Today where she was president of the newspaper, then publisher. The rest is, as they say, publishing history, too. She joined Page Six’s Liz Smith in November to discuss her new book, BASIC BLACK: The Essential Guide for Getting Ahead at Work (and in Life) for the Y’s Ruth Stanton About Women Series. In the video clip above she discusses her “wildest moment” in her publishing career and answers the question, “can women have it all?”
Upcoming Talks in the Ruth Stanton About Women Series: Alex Witchel with Nora Ephron, Kathleen Turner with Gloria Feldt, Amy Richards and Katie Roiphe, Dorothy Hamill with Dr. Gail Saltz, Cokie Roberts and Christine C. Quinn with Meryl Gordon.
