60 titles launched in U.S. in 2020
2020 was not a good year for media. Yet even with a pandemic, some positive-thinking publishers ventured to launch new titles, according to Samir Husni, director of the Magazine Innovation Center at the University of Missouri, or more commonly known as Mr. Magazine.


“From legacy publishers like Meredith and Dennis Publishing to the brave entrepreneurs who dared to make their dreams come true, to a magazine like Marvin from a man who brought his own print experiences back to life, to the rebirth of Playgirl to the publication of Sweet July to Beach Happy to Drew and Jonathan Scott’s Reveal, 60 new magazines were born during a pandemic, including a weekly, yes you read that right, aimed at kids, The Week Junior, proving once again that print is something people wanted and yes, this year, needed in their lives,” says a post on his site.
