In its June 2006 issue, BtoB Media Business described the 25 publications as having “shaped the business publishing industry.” Publications on the list include BusinessWeek, The Economist, Forbes, Fortune, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
BtoB Media Business, published by Crain Communications, Inc., picked the “Media Business 100” to reflect the events, people and publications that have shaped the industry. The “Media Business 100” is comprised of the top 25 business publications, top 25 people and top 50 publishing milestones.
It commemorates the 100th anniversary of American Business Media (ABM), the industry association for business-to-business information providers. ABM’s more than 300 member companies reach an audience of more than 100 million people and represent nearly 5,000 print and online titles and 1,000 trade shows.
“The Media Business 100” were compiled based on nominations by the BtoB Media Business editorial staff and freelance contributors.
