Joanna Coles has held the glamorous titles of editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire magazines. Today, she’s the first person to serve as the chief content officer of Hearst Magazines.
But Coles launched her journalism career in a place far from the world of glossy monthlies, as a reporter for The Guardian and The Times of London.
On an episode of Business Insider’s podcast, “Success! How I Did It,” Coles told Business Insider US editor-in-chief Alyson Shontell that she leapt from newspaper to magazine journalism because she thought the lifestyle of a magazine editor was more conducive to being a mom.
