Victoria V. Hearst, 58, is an heir to the Hearst Publishing empire. Her grandfather, William Randolph (W. R.) Hearst (1863-1951), began the company when he was 23 years old, after his father, George, placed him in charge of the San Francisco Examiner in 1887.
Today, the privately held, information and media, business is composed of nearly 200 companies, in 150 countries.
Unlike Victoria’s cousin, William Randolph Hearst III, who is currently the Chairman of the Board of Hearst Foundation; a director of Hearst Corporation; and the president of the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, Ms. Hearst is concerned about the psychological damage that one of the Hearst Corporation’s magazines, is doing to minor children. The magazine is Cosmopolitan, and it is known as Cosmo, for short.
