The Association of German Magazine Publishers held its Publishers’ Summit last week in Berlin. In an interview, Philipp Welte, a management board member of family-run Hubert Burda Media, one of the country’s largest media companies, made no secret of his annoyance at those bemoaning the state of the industry.
Mr. Welte, is weekly Focus magazine still the journalistic flagship of the Burda publishing house?
From a journalistic point of view it is one of our most important titles in a very strong portfolio – and still our biggest advertising medium. Focus is a byword for high journalistic quality.
