HGTV Magazine Boosting Rate Base Twice in 2013

first_imgFood Network magazine, the first joint venture between Hearst and Scripps, has seen similar success. That title has gone through seven rate base increases, now at 1.45 million from a launch rate base of 400,000. That title also launched with two test issues and quickly scaled to 900,000 after those tests.The jump for HGTV is a good sign for the brand, at least in terms of its survivability alongside the rest of Hearst’s magazines. “Magazines with 300,000 units of circulation aren’t optimal for us—we’re really looking for 700,000 at the low end and 4 million at the high end, we need a passionate audience of scale,” said John Loughlin, executive vice president and general manager for Hearst Magazines, in an article for Audience Development magazine examining the relationship between magazine brands and their TV show counterparts. HGTV Magazine, published by Hearst in a partnership with Scripps Networks’ HGTV, is following in the footsteps of its big sister title, Food Network, by dramatically increasing its rate base in the next year. The magazine will jump to 700,000 with the January/February 2013 issue, then 800,000 in July. In all, HGTV will have increased its rate base 78 percent.The increase comes only 8 months after a test issue of the magazine first appeared on newsstands last October with a rate base of 450,000. “With the strength of the HGTV brand behind us, we have created a new kind of magazine, home/lifestyle, that is resonating deeply with readers and is building incredible momentum in the marketplace,” says HGTV chief revenue officer/publisher Dan Fuchs in a statement.In the fourth quarter of 2011, the magazine tested two issues, then debuted with the first official issue in June/July. Three more issues are planned for 2012. The first test issue blew through its distribution and Hearst did another press run of 135,000 more copies.last_img read more

If so what do all those cameras do? Spigen Last year, the Huawei P20 Pro and its triple rear cameras stole the show from other photo heavy hitters like the Google Pixel 2 and iPhone X. And while there are rumors that the 2019 iPhone and the upcoming Galaxy S10 Plus will have three rear cameras, it seems Huawei isn’t one to be outdone. A photo of a case for the unreleased Huawei P30 Pro shows the phone with four rear cameras. This could be a case of Huawei literally one-upping Samsung and Apple.As reported by Android Authority, phone case maker Spigen published photos of the Huawei P30 Pro sporting a clear plastic case. The case has a cutout for a camera bump with four rear cameras stacked vertically. Another photo on the site shows the front of the phone sporting a notched display. The notch looks like a half-circle with curved edges.Four rear cameras is terribly exciting but what could they all be used for? For that, we’ll have to wait for the Huawei P30 Pro to be released, which might not be that long. According to TechRadar, the Polish website Telix says that the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro will launch at the end of March at an event in Paris. This is obviously after Mobile World Congress which is at the end of February.Huawei did not immediately respond to a request to comment. $534 47 Photos News • Huawei P30 Pro in a gorgeous orange finish leaks Google Huawei Samsung Apple Review • Huawei P30 review: The P30 Pro’s fantastic photos for less Comments • How To • Huawei P30 phone announcement: How to watch, what to expectlast_img read more
