The Atlantic wins mag of the year; New York wins multiple "Ellies" in U.S. national magazine awards

The Atlantic won magazine of the year in the U.S. National Magazine Awards, presented last night. New York magazine was the only multiple award-winner. Of note in the event were two particular things: the growing presence of digital publications among award-winners; and the standing ovation for David Granger, who is departing as editor of Esquire after 19 years.  Taking home the essays and criticism prize. Granger quipped: "I'm so happy about this that I'm just going to quit."
