Get Ready to Say Goodbye to Family Circle Magazine in December
Sad news for this beloved magazine…
Meredith Corporation, the media and marketing company that publishes popular magazines like Better Homes & Gardens, Magnolia Journal, Real Simple, Martha Stewart Living, and Southern Living, has announced that it will end publication of Family Circle magazine after its December 2019 issue.
Doug Olson, President of Meredith Magazines, issued the following statement:
“When we acquired the Time Inc. portfolio of media brands in January 2018, we doubled our presence in the women’s lifestyle category. Our portfolio philosophy continues to emphasize investing in brands that are market leaders and/or possess the highest growth potential. Sometimes, that means making hard decisions.”
Founded in 1932, Family Circle was acquired by Meredith in 2005. After 87 years, it’s currently published 12 times a year at the rate of about 4 million copies per month. If you are a current subscriber of Family Circle, you will receive another Meredith title until your subscription has been fulfilled.
