The business of growing audience

Newsweek's Josh Awtry to address Mega-Conference


With third-party cookies crumbling and the social media landscape softening, it’s never been a more important time to own your own audience.

Next Monday afternoon at the Mega-Conference, Josh Awtry, senior vice president, audience development with Newsweek, will delve into the business case for engagement and how to build a healthy funnel with first-party data no matter the size of your operation. Learn valuable strategies in audience development to connect communities, enhance readership and build the business.

Awry joined Newsweek last May after leading audience development at The Hill, a nonpartisan news outlet focused on politics and policy. His focus on quality helped The Hill reach two-year traffic highs and set all-time records in the amount of time readers spend with the site. Before that, he led consistent strategy for the USA TODAY Network.

At Newsweek, he has been responsible for charting an ambitious path for growth by engaging Americans with unique content that spans the cultural and political spectrum to further Newsweek's mission of welcoming diverse views and voices that advance the search for common ground.
