Story Magazine and 393 Other New Magazine Launches Cap the First Half of 2012 on a High Note…June 30, 2012
A perfect 100 was the total of new magazines with an intended frequency appeared on the nation’s newsstands in the first half of 2012. In addition to that 294 new titles appeared as specials, annuals or book-a-zines.
In the month of June alone a total of 59 titles arrived at the newsstands for the first time including 14 magazines published with a specific frequency (see some images below).
The last magazine arriving on the scene as the month of June comes to a close was Story magazine. The quarterly publication “is directed at readers in Kentucky who are interested in Kentucky life that often falls outside the bounds of traditional media.” With a tag line “Story: Kentucky Has One to Tell,” the magazine provides a welcomed twist on the city, state and regional publications. Check a preview of the magazine here and be sure to be one of the first to take a look at this publication which is the brain child of Julia L. Wilson, Story’s founder and editor in chief.
