John Harrington is a partner in Harrington Associates, LLC, which publishes The New Single Copy newsletter and produced the Magazine Retail Sales Experience series of studies, provides services to the periodical distribution industry, and works with individual wholesalers, publishers, and national distributors. The data from his studies is considered the definitive measure of magazine single copy sales. He has conducted workshop and seminar programs for major publishers, national distributors, and wholesalers. He has spoken at meetings of the MPA-The Association of Magazine Media, Distripress, The Periodical and Book Association of America, the Periodical Wholesalers of North America, and lectured at several universities. He is a director of the Magazine Innovation Center at the Meek School of Journalism at the University of Mississippi and has spoken at conferences held there. He is generally recognized as the leading independent authority on the magazine retail distribution channel and has increasingly been involved in broader magazine media issues. He and his work have often been quoted and cited in publications such of The New York Times The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, Advertising Age, and AdWeek, as well as numerous retail trade publications. Harrington Associates was founded in July of 1996. For nearly twenty years prior to that, John Harrington worked for the Council for Periodical Distributors Associations, the trade association for periodical wholesalers in the United States and Canada, first as the editor of CPDA News, then as the executive vice president, and he was named the president in 1986.
