Good news for those looking to get into the magazine business, The New York Time’s Magazine has recently reported that they saw “double-digit” increases in ad revenue during the first quarter of this year. The earnings were reported by Times Company chief executive, Janet Robinson, in an earnings conference call on Thursday, April 21st.

If you are wondering why such an increase in ad revenue, Robinson came up with some reasonings. First, she credited the magazine’s editor, Hugo Lindgren, for the relaunch and redesign. Lindgren, she said, also encouraged a “strong showing” from advertisers, especially in the health care, real estate, and financial services.

Ad pages were up by 10.5% and the total ad pages were at 509, which brought it back to its levels in the first quarter of 2009.
