Oprah Winfrey’s Magazine to Cease Regular Print Publication as Brand Becomes “Digitally Centric”
Oprah Winfrey’s monthly magazine will no longer print after its December 2020 issue. Instead, it will focus on digital.
A rep for Hearst Magazines confirmed the news in a statement stating:
“As the brand celebrates twenty years of O, The Oprah Magazine, we’re thinking about what’s next, but again the partnership and the brand are not going away. This is a natural next step for the brand, which has grown to an online audience of 8 million, extending its voice and vision with video and social content. We will continue to invest in this platform as the brand grows and evolves into one that is more digitally centric.”
Oprah Winfrey also said in a statement:
“I’m proud of this team and what we have delivered to our readers over the past 20 years. I look forward to the next step in our evolution.”
Reportedly, as of this year, the average paid circulation for the magazine was 2.2 million copies and a print audience of 10 million.
