Time Inc. Executive Vice President John Squires explained, “Time Inc. reaches more unique visitors than any other magazine publisher. These latest figures from Nielsen reinforce the fact that Time Inc.’s web sites are competitive with all media companies including social networking sites and web portals, providing consumers the information they want, when and how they want it. An example of this is our success with online video. Last month CNNMoney.com had more than 21 million video streams (Nielsen Online, VideoCensus.), making it the number one site for video in the financial news category. With so much information available online, consumers are gravitating towards Time Inc.’s brands for trusted, edited content.”
