Meredith Corporation Looks To Gain More Titles

In an interview with CNBC.com, Steve Lacy, the company’s Chief Executive Officer, said that within a year he expects to add several magazines, and specifically named Rodale’s Men’s Health and Women’s Health as titles Meredith was interested in acquiring. Lacy says that consolidating publications is vital, because the bigger the magazine the larger the advertisers will be.

Obviously the executives at Rodale know what Lacy knows, so we don’t see them giving up two of their most popular publications without a fight. We here at FishbowlNY see it going down much like the process of reading a Men’s Health or Women’s Health.

First there’s the bold proclamation of improving yourself (we’re going to take those from Rodale!), followed by the intense studying of a workout regimen (these numbers say we should get more magazines!), then a few tentative steps to show everyone you meant what you said (we’ve inquired about those titles, just in case), followed lastly by the decision to abandon the whole plan because sitting on your couch and eating Snickers is more fun than exercising (uh, maybe keeping our own magazines afloat in this climate is enough work for now).
