Pacific Standard launch party in New York City

Posted by lauren on May 2nd, 2012

ANPR client Pacific Standard trekked cross-country from Santa Barbara last week to introduce their new, pioneering magazine to the East. Sipping down the best California wines at the lovely Corkbuzz Wine Studio and snacking on canapés over conversation, Corkbuzz was very much abuzz (no pun intended!) with chatter about the magazine and where it’s headed under the direction of Editor-in-Chief Maria Streshinky, formerly the managing editor at The Atlantic, and President/Publisher P. Steven Ainsley.

Not surprisingly, New Yorkers, among them—Jim Ledbetter, Keach Hagey, Felix Salmon, Glynnis MacNichol, Charlotte Morgan, Rachel Sklar, Jeff Bercovici —were intrigued by Pacific Standard and the role it’s carving out within the national media conversation.  Kenneth Prewitt of Columbia University and SIPA, David Andelman of the World Policy Institute, and writers from ProPublica also chatted about the western perspective, why Obama is looking West, and a fascinating look into the psychology of the superhero.
