TIME Magazine

 

Behind its iconic, red-bordered cover, TIME dispenses page after page of Village wisdom. America's oldest news magazine has managed to remain relevant even in today's shrinking print market, thanks to initiatives like TIME 100, its annual list of the most influential people in the world. And designation as TIME’s Person the Year continues to be perhaps the most coveted honor bestowed by any publication.
