Top Industry Award Nomination Caps Year of Record Growth for Mother Jones
2014 was a year of record growth for Mother Jones.

In the last several years, MoJo has
reinvented itself from a bimonthly print publication (200,000
circulation) to a 24/7 multiplatform news outlet reaching 9 million
readers a month. "We decided to take the ethos of longform investigative
journalism daily and digital," says President and CEO Madeleine
Buckingham. "And in so doing, perhaps no magazine has better
demonstrated how the internet can enable a niche publication to grow
into a serious player in the news ecosystem."
Today Mother Jones has
a staff of 75 employees in three offices across the nation. Its mix of
diversified revenue streams includes support from 40,000 individual
donors--among the largest donor
groups of any nonprofit news outlet--circulation income, and
advertising, which saw an 8.7 percent increase in sales in 2014.
It was also a year of game-changing journalism for Mother Jones. Highlights include:
the story of child migrants fleeing Central America and crossing the US
border, news that has culminated in an executive order from President
An in-depth investigation into the safety of BPA-free plastics sparked an expansive industry review.
A Harvard School of Public Health study on MoJo's mass shootings database confirmed that the incidents have tripled in frequency since 2011.
A multimedia investigation and documentary on the emerging fracking boom in China, screening at film festivals in 2015.
The launch of Inquiring Minds, one of iTunes' most popular science podcasts.
"We've managed to combine solid journalism and continuous innovation," says Co-Editor Clara Jeffery, "Our audience responds to--and shares--journalism that is both fresh and first-rate; we look forward to producing more of the same in 2015."
Mother Jones welcomes story editor Marianne Szegedy-Maszak and reporter Pema Levy to its DC reporting bureau this month.
