Magazine Launches First Half 2016 Vs. 2015: More Specials, Less Frequency

July 1, 2016

The total number of magazine launches in the first half of 2016 totaled 396 titles divided between 99 titles with a regular frequency and 297 specials and book-a-zines. Compare those numbers to the first half of 2015 where 412 titles were launched divided between 118 titles with a regular frequency and 294 specials and book-a-zines.

Needless to say the first half of 2016 witnessed a decrease of 19 titles with frequency and an increase of 3 titles in the special book-a-zine category. The total loss of the first half of 2016 from that of 2015 stands at 16 titles.

  1. I love magazines and books. I never believed that stuff about print magazines becoming obsolete.There have to be a lot more people like me who believe that nothing can take the place of a magazine that you can hold in your hands, smell the paper and ink and take with you anywhere. I was a magazine merchandiser for 7 years with Source-Interlink before they went bankrupt, and way before that, I was the newsstand manager at Bookstar. And before that, Crown Books. But what I did see is print magazines being supplemented by other media. And this is a really good thing. I have thousands of magazines that I have bought and saved.And still appreciate, even the really old ones.
