The Nation’s president, Erin O’Mara, illustrated the success of the magazine’s popular travel program that took off as a result of readers’ appreciation for a specific, experiential content The Nation could provide, which included traveling to and exploring Cuba (a country the magazine regularly covers).

TMB's Bonnie Kintzer, Adweek's Jeff Litvack and Skift's Rafat Ali all agreed. Creating innovative opportunities for audiences to engage with a brand is top of mind, and it’s the brand...
