Memo Pad: Oprah Meets Ralph Lauren... Conde Nast Spain, El Pais Team Up...

With the end of her farewell season just days away, Oprah Winfrey secured herself a particularly fashionable and rare television interview — Ralph Lauren.

CONDE NAST SPAIN AND EL PAIS TEAM UP: Condé Nast Spain and the Spanish news organization El Pais have partnered to launch a new weekly Spanish women’s magazine, Condé Nast International said Friday. The glossy women’s title will cover fashion, beauty, society and current affairs, and will come as a supplement to the Saturday edition of El Pais. The title is set to hit newsstands in September. Condé Nast and El Pais will produce the magazine through Conelpa, their new joint venture, and will each take a 50 percent stake in the new venture. Condé Nast International described the joint venture as a partnership between “Condé Nast’s wealth of experience and El Pais’ well-respected broadsheet.”

To head the publication, the two companies have appointed a management team that includes Empar Prieto as editorial director, Javier Pascual del Olmo as president, Maria Frias as managing director and Elena Ferreras as head of advertising. Condé Nast International said the title will capitalize “on the growing market for weekly magazines,” and noted that it will also be available in a digital format.
