People, you need to go check the awards that VQR has won, 2011 National Magazine Awards, for example: VQR wins fiction award, edging out the Atlantic and the New Yorker http://www.magazine.org/asme/about_asme/asme_press_releases/nma-2011-win... Also multi-media package, edging out National...

Try reading the press release before you comment. It doesn't state, or even imply that VQR competes with National Geo or the New Yorker. the direct quote from the release is: "This year the magazine was again honored by the National Magazine Award judges with three more nominations, including its...

Thanks Chocolate: that Chron. of Higher Ed. article says Genoways put his house on the market "earlier this year." So "earlier this year" would be the time around which an enterprising reporter might start sniffing--if he wanted to find out when and why and by whom the decision on Genoways'...

@DTB -- Starsia turned a blind eye to his players. Now UVA is turning a blind eye to Starsia's lack of supervision and oversight of HIS players which, by the way, continues to this day. He said he's not changing a thing about the way he coaches! "Not sniff out in time"? He didn't even try. He doesn...

All 3,000* subscribers say it competes with National Geographic and the New Yorker ( in their Households ). *the Hook mentioned how many subscribers they have, I don't remember.

Pretty sure VQR already had a devoted following before Genoways was hired. He did raise its visibility. But perhaps that's not all that great an accomplishment when you have an $800,000 endowment (accumulated through the efforts of the previous editor and his staff) to burn through.
