Conde Nast Ceasing Publication of Golf for Women
Posted on July 27, 2008Conde Nast Publications is ceasing publication of Golf for Women magazine with the July/August issue. Charles H. Townsend, President & CEO of Conde Nast Publications says the magazine no longer supports Conde Nast's "long term business objectives." Conde Nast purchased Golf for Women from the Meredith Corporation in 2006. The popular magazine had a rate base of 600,000.
"We came to this decision because we feel the magazine will not support our long term business objectives," Mr. Townsend said. "I would like to thank Susan Reed and Chris McLoughlin and the entire staff for their efforts throughout the years. Golf For Women attracted a loyal readership and we were proud to publish it."
It is unclear what is going to happen to the Golf for Women website. Some more articles and blog posts on the magazine's closing can be found on World for Golf, CyberGolf.com and Golf Girl's Diary.
