Best Life to Return

Best Life, the spinoff of Men’s Health that folded in 2009, is coming back. The New York Post reports that it will return this fall as a “special interest publication,” with a planned distribution of 300,000.

As in its previous life, Stephen Perrine will return as Editor-in-Chief and David Zinczenko will serve Best Life’s Editorial Director.

The men’s title launched in 2004 with a rate base of 500,000, but was shut down just five years later. “Best Life could not meet our internal benchmarks, and we have made the decision to focus our resources on our core brands,” Rodale’s former CEO Steven Murphy, said at the time.
