Very close to the end of preparing this issue of Creative COW Magazine, we were delighted to add Debra Kaufman to the Creative COW team, as our new Associate Editor. After over 20 years as the most respected freelance writer in the industry, she has joined us full time, and we're truly honored. More prudent magazine builders would have waited for the next full cycle before getting underway -- but what fun would that be? Instead, with a week to go before our deadline, we added not one but two stories by Debra to this issue, both of which are featured on the cover.|

|There's Something in the Air|
In this 25th Issue of Creative COW Magazine, we've done something that we've never done before, which is to feature individual stories, rather than draw attention to an overall theme. We still have a theme, of course, so please allow Tim Wilson to introduce this issue by its official name: In the Air. We thought about calling it "On the Air," just in time for NAB, but we're doing more than just talk about broadcast. This issue is a look at, not just the changes that are coming to our industry, but also the changes that are already here. Your future may well have shown up already.
