A funny thing this morning: lots of odd magazine news. I mean, I imagine that the world of magazines is always chock-full of hot gossip and raging acquisitions, but today’s stories all seem to have a common thread — I’m just not sure what it is.
First Curtco (you’ve heard of them, surely) is up for sale. The publishers of fine ‘zines like The Robb Report is looking to be sold for somewhere in the neighborhood of $500 million. The 20-odd magazines owned by the publisher are targeted toward the very wealthy. Well, rich people have to read, too.
