La Bimberly's new job has nothing to do with oily article (no, really)

People always deny that they use Campaign as a job-finding service, preferring to prospect at drunken awards dinners and the like.

It must have been a coincidence then, that Kimberly Fortier, who leaves

her job as the communications director of Conde Nast this week to take

up a new post as publisher of the Spectator, had earlier written such an

oily account of her fascination with it in Campaign (15 July 1994): "The

Spectators of about 1832 were the first copies to come into my life.

Instantly hooked, I stuck with the title throughout my university

career, and the 19th century in general - not a bad run of reader


And so it goes on, culminating in La Bimberly’s emotional ‘I need the

Spectator’, complete with its ‘timewarp of journalistic values’. Just

fancy that.
