Carol Smith To Join Miller Publishing Group.
Smith is currently the President of Time Publishing Venture's Parenting Group, a division of Time Inc., which publishes Parenting, Baby Talk and Healthy Pregnancy. She will head up six magazines -- Tennis, Tennis Buyer's Guide, Cruising World, Sailing World, Snow Country, and Snow Country Business -- which Miller is acquiring from The New York Times Co.
Robert L. Miller, president of Miller Publishing Group says, "Carol is an exceedingly proficient, creative and dedicated publishing executive, as I know from working with her at Time Inc. I have no doubt that she'll be a tremendous asset to Miller Publishing."
Carol Smith said, "No one could have had a better job than the one I'm leaving at Parenting, but Bob was my boss once before, and I'm greatly looking forward to working with him again, especially in a field that is both new and intriguing to me."
Smith began her publishing career in 1973 as the first female salesperson for the Wall Street Journal. She helped found Parenting in 1986, and for the last five years has headed the company. During her tenure, the flagship magazine, Parenting, has grown to a circulation of 1.3 million and in 1997, it will have more than 1,200 advertising pages.
Miller Publishing Group, with headquarters in Los Angeles, is a partnership recently formed between Freeman Spogli & Co. Inc., a private equity investment firm and Miller, a former Time Inc. executive. The company also owns a controlling interest in two music publications, VIBE and SPIN, as well as WHERE, the world's leading visitors' publication.
