Magazines Launches and Closings in 2011
239 magazines launched in 2011. (Media Daily News, 12/15/2011)
Excerpt: Among consumer magazines, 2011's noteworthy new launches included HGTV Magazine, published by Hearst Corp. in partnership with the popular cable channel devoted to real estate sales and renovation. This year also saw the launch of Style.com/Print, a fashion title based on the Condé Nast Web site of the same name.
This year’s prominent closures included Get Married, perhaps reflecting reduced spending on weddings in a difficult economy. Earlier this year, “brides local” magazines that were a print offshoot of brides.com also shuttered. The content from those locals was assimilated online. Brides from Conde Nast remains open.
Major launch of 2011.
