Celebrity Magazine 'Premiere' Goes All-Digi
Premiere magazine, which for 20 years applied some rigorous journalism to celebrity and entertainment reporting, will stop publishing an ink-on-paper copy and move entirely to the Web and mobile devices, the mag's publisher said this week.
The company said that changes in the industry and the way consumers want celebrity news forced the closing of the magazine, which claimed a monthly circulation of just less than 500,000, down 100,000 from the mid-'90s. The mag's editor-in-chief will leave but Hachette did not say if there would be layoffs.
The rise of Internet-only celeb news sites such as TMZ.com has put the squeeze on glossies such as Premiere.
