Posted by

Welcome to episode #891 of Six Pixels of Separation – The ThinkersOne Podcast.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – The ThinkersOne Podcast – Episode #891. Journalist, media executive and author, Joanne Lipman, is back with a great new book, Next! – The Power of Reinvention in Life and Work (many know her from her previous effort, That’s What She Said). Joanne is revered for her innovative leadership across various high-profile media institutions, including USA Today, USA Today Network, Conde Nast Portfolio, and The Wall Street Journal‘s Weekend Journal. Her editorial acumen has guided these organizations to earn a total of six Pulitzer Prizes. Starting her career as a reporter at The Wall Street Journal, Joanne shattered glass ceilings to become the first woman Deputy Managing Editor. During her tenure, she orchestrated the creation of Weekend Journal and Personal Journal, leading coverage that garnered three Pulitzer Prizes. Further solidifying her “star editor” reputation, as termed by CNN, Joanne was the founding Editor-in-Chief of Conde Nast Portfolio (which was a great business magazine), winning National Magazine and Loeb Awards. In 2015, Lipman achieved another milestone by becoming Gannett‘s first Chief Content Officer. As the Editor-in-Chief of USA Today and USA Today Network, she skillfully managed over 3,000 journalists across 109 metro newspapers, including the Detroit Free Press and the Arizona Republic. Under her leadership, the network clinched three additional Pulitzer Prizes. Beyond her editorial roles, Joanne is an accomplished speaker, television commentator, and an on-air contributor at CNBC. She shares her vast journalistic experience as a lecturer at Yale University and has been honored as the inaugural Distinguished Journalism Fellow at Princeton’s Institute for Advanced Study. She has also co-authored the highly praised musical memoir, Strings Attached. Her vast accomplishments aptly justify The New York Times‘ portrayal of her as the “innovator in chief.” Joanne explains that her latest book, Next!, is the ultimate guide to reinventing how you live, work and lead, backed by cutting-edge science and inspiring true stories.
