Ladies’ way of life magazine Family Circle will close not long from now, distributer Meredith Corporation reported Wednesday.
The month to month title’s December 2019 issue will be its last, the distributer said. Doug Olson, leader of Meredith Magazines, said in a public statement that the organization multiplied its quality in the ladies’ way of life class in 2018 when it obtained the Time Inc. arrangement of brands.
“Our portfolio philosophy continues to emphasize investing in brands that are market leaders and/or possess the highest growth potential,” Olson said. “Sometimes, that means making hard decisions.”
Family Circle was established in 1932. It changed hands a few times during its history and went to Meredith in 2005 as a major aspect of the organization’s acquisition of Gruner + Jahr USA. It is distributed 12 times each year with a ratebase of 4 million.
Some Family Circle workers will move somewhere else in Meredith, the organization said. Cheryl Brown, Family Circle’s editorial manager in-boss, is moving to Health as its official proofreader. The organization didn’t indicate what number of workers would lose their positions.
“Fortunately, we have been able to find new roles for some of the Family Circle team, and I would like to thank the entire group for its hard work and wish those employees affected the best in future endeavors,” Olson said.
The distributer said supporters will get another Meredith title until their membership is filled.
