August Sparks 18 New Frequency Titles & A Different Approach To Mr. Magazine’s™ Monthly Launch Monitor…

With the autumn season approaching, changes are imminent. And for many, those changes are welcomed and long overdue, from cooler weather to football season to pumpkins, s’mores and bonfires. For Mr. Magazine’s™ Launch Monitor, changes begin with this month’s listing of new magazines. Just as there’s a time for everything under the sun, it is time for a new look over at Mr. Magazine™ Launch Monitor headquarters and those changes consist of displaying and documenting the heart of the magazine industry: the frequency titles.

While specials, annuals and bookazines play a major role in the magazine marketplace, the heartbeat and life’s blood of the industry has been and always will be those frequency titles that show up at the newsstands or in your mailbox on a regular basis, whether that is weekly, monthly, or bimonthly. So, beginning with August’s beautiful, and might I say, healthy number of new titles, the Mr. Magazine™ Launch Monitor will list only frequency magazines. That way you can enjoy these gorgeous new magazines here and at the newsstands on a customary level.  Also included will be the magazines that arrive to the newsstands for the first time or those which we failed to list in a prior month or that we missed when they first appeared.  In addition, magazines that change their name are also included in the count for future researchers to be aware of.  Case in point, People Style that used to be Style Watch and MASS that used to be MMM.

So, without further ado, Mr. Magazine™ presents 18 new frequency titles that will give you pleasure and delight (such as the new title Shrimp, Collards & Grits, a new magazine that brings the South to your front door) to a magazine that personalizes and shows the strength in regional titles (J, the magazine all about downtown Jacksonville, Fla. and the many new and wonderful things going on there), to a new title that comes in a box for founding members (the Golfer’s Journal – and please note that the black box this title is sent in to founding member subscribers is also displayed next to the magazine, so it is not listed in the count).

And now our beautiful frequency covers:


July Gave Us 43 New Titles – 14 Of Them With Promised Frequency

Summer continued on with great new titles that covered everything from the “Art Market Gold List” to what many call the trendy way of eating today – straight from the field to the table with Recoil’s “Carnivore,” the magazine that relives the days when that practice was far from trendy; it was necessary and normal. However, this just goes to show, as Mr. Magazine™ has said from the beginning; magazines are the best reflectors of our pop culture and society in each generation, and they always will be.

We also saw the rebirth of “American Frontiersman” in July, and we say welcome back after its brief respite. It’s always good to open the door and invite an old friend back into our homes.

So, I hope that you enjoy our July offerings, and stay tuned for some new twists for August. Until then…

June Brought Us 46 New Magazine Titles, 12 With Promised Frequency…

From Okra to Gaga, June magazines covered quite the variety in topic. And each and every one of them offer us a jam-packed summer of great reading. With Hearst’s launch of the highly successful The Pioneer Woman, we discover the continued magic of magazines and celebrities teaming up to dazzle us all is quite the winning combination.

June also brought 34 bookazines and specials, proving that those niche interests are definitely not waning either. So, all in all, it was another great month for new launches.  And Mr. Magazine™ is certainly looking forward to a Jubilant July…what about you?

See you then…but first, enjoy our new June titles.

What A Marvelous May For New Launches: 68 Total – 20 With Promised Frequency…

Summer is almost here and the new magazines are gearing up to give us all plenty of reading pleasure throughout the long, hot days. For the month of May, Airbnb’s new travel magazine offered human stories from all over the world and became one of the month’s most notable mentions. Design LA was also born in the month of May and is one regional magazine that everyone will want to read. And with the relaunch of Zink, we see an Indie fashion magazine from 2002 being resurrected for a new generation. So enjoy the new, the ones that first appeared on the newsstands, and the ones celebrating a return to print.

And once again, specials and bookazines are delightfully diverse and appear to be all over newsstands. May has produced some fantastic new titles and June promises to be just as active and fresh with its summer crop.

So, see you next month, but until then…

April Brings Showers Of New Magazines With A Total Of 42 Titles – 12 With Promised Frequency…

April 2017 brought us 42 launches that produced 12 frequency titles – of which, all of them are a very diverse and interesting group of topics. From Chicago Mod – a magazine that’s tagline promises a “life well lived,” to the new reborn House & Garden that Meredith has relaunched, via a license from Condé Nast,with Stephen Orr as editor in chief; the frequency titles promise to give us repeated joy and fun throughout the upcoming summer months.

And while in comparison to 2016, our April numbers are down somewhat (we had 71 titles in April 2016, with 21 frequency), the power of print pushes forward and gives us great new content each and every month.

See you soon for a Marvelous May!

Here are our wonderful April covers. Enjoy!

March Brings Springtime & A Beautiful Array Of New Magazines – 6 With Promised Frequency & 62 Specials, Annuals & Bookazines…

Spring has arrived and it’s a time for freshness and a wave of good spirits as we all anticipate the warm, beautiful days ahead of us. And the world of magazines seems to agree as we have a host of new titles that not only beckon us to have a “Good Day!” but also to use Nature’s Remedies to “Heal Your Body” and to discover the “Journey to a Better You.” It’s a positive time of year with a positive number of new magazines – 6 with frequency and 62 specials, annuals and bookazines, with the total up just a bit from last year. In March 2016- we had 53 total new launches – with 46 of those specials, annuals and bookazines.

As you can see, niche is still queen of the newsstand as bookazines move in and take over their particular spot in the hierarchy of printdom more and more each year. As magazines and magazine media discovered some time ago, when you target the audience and provide them with the content they crave, people will pay for your product and wait for your next installment with anticipation.

So, I won’t make you wait any longer to look at our beautiful March covers and we’ll see you next month for an amazing April!

January: A New Month, A New Year And A Total of 37 New Titles, 5 With Promised Frequency…

Often the month of January receives a bad wrap; people are finished with the Holiday season and are ready for springtime. And sometimes our expectations are preconceived when it comes to the “J” month that has a whopping, and usually frigid 31 days. But in the world of magazines the month of January was the beginning of the New Year, of course, but also the beginning of some very good and and very beautiful new titles. From the very popular Nick Jr.’s children’s series, Paw Patrol, which as of January had its own magazine, to specialty titles that ranged from 100 Women Who Changed the World to Birds & Butterflies (yes, even the magazine industry is ready for spring), the new titles gave us entertainment, information and inspiration.

So, enjoy our beautiful January, 2017 titles as we gear up for a fabulous February!

This November The Bounty Of 75 New Magazines Was Certainly Something To Be Thankful For With 26 Titles Promising Regular Frequency & 49 Specials, Annuals and Bookazines

As everyone is gearing up for a fun and exciting holiday season, the world of magazines is no exception. In November the new titles were diverse and as plentiful as  pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. Frequency magazines included everything from the foodie magazine “Cured”, to “Grow,” a magazine for the quintessential cannabis horticulturist. There were more adult coloring titles, and of course those rare breeds that reflect the passions and ideas of their creators, such as “Cartography” and “illustoria,” a magazine for creative kids and their grownups.

I hope that you enjoy our great November covers as we anticipate the upcoming Christmas & Holiday season, and all of the wonderful December titles that are on the way.

Until then…here are the November magazines including my favorite representative name for a magazine so far, “Me Time.”  That’s what magazines are for, just me time.
