The New Yorker is an American magazine founded by Harold Ross . The first edition appeared on February 21, 1925 . The New Yorker is known for his short stories , reviews, essays and cartoons, as well as his journalism. An entire issue was devoted to John Herseys report on Hiroshima . But his cover pictures, which, unlike the front pages of other newspapers, are designed exclusively by illustrators, are an important part of the The New Yorker brand . The cover pictures The Politics of Fear from 2008 and Moment of Joy from 2013 gained particular prominence . The first editor Harold Ross described the self- image of the magazine with the words: “The New Yorker will be the magazine which is not edited for the old lady in Dubuque ”; So it is not intended for honest readers with more provincial ideas.

The current editor-in-chief of the New Yorker is David Remnick . His predecessors were Tina Brown , Robert Gottlieb , William Shawn and Harold Ross . The magazine is now published 47 times a year by Condé Nast Verlag , which belongs to Advance Publications - with over 100 magazines, e. B. Vogue , distributed in over 20 countries (as of February 2009).
