15 million: Visitors to NYPost.com and PageSix.com in March
Why they matter: With headlines like "Osama Bin Wankin'!" and "Weiner's Rise and Fall," the New York Post continues to be impossible to ignore since being founded in 1801 by Alexander Hamilton. Last year, parent company News Corp. split its film and TV assets from its publishing ones, and now the pressure is on Angelo, 40, and Allan, 61, to turn around millions being lost on the print edition. Last September, Angelo led a reboot of the Post's digital properties, and so far, returns have been impressive, with unique visitors up to 15 million a month, compared to about 10 million six months ago. The publication also has been gaining online revenue through integrated ad partnerships with the likes of Bravo TV and the Tennis Channel. The trend has led Rupert Murdoch to muse that the Post might be all-digital in a decade. "There's not a news proprietor who hasn't mused whether there will be a print product in 10 years," responds Angelo. As for Allan, he's just back from an assignment to revamp News Corp.'s struggling Australian papers. Did Angelo miss him? "Desperately."
Proudest accomplishment this year: "Fifty percent of traffic is coming from mobile devices," says Angelo. "That is up from 30 percent a year ago. Growth is explosive."
Goal for next year: "Bigger, better, faster, more innovative, breaking more stories and, oh, there will be a big new push into video," says Angelo.
