New Publisher Consortium Gets A Name

magazinespic.jpgThe much anticipated magazine publisher consortium, which officially announced its intention to launch some sort of e-reader format earlier this month, now has a name.

Folio reports that the partnership between Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corp. and Time Inc., led by Time’s John Squires, will be called Next Issue Media. But even with a name, the consortium has yet to divulge what its digital reader format will be, or offered up names for a yet-to-be-revealed e-reader device and digital storefront.

Regardless, we’re waiting to see what they come up with, when they decide to unveil it.
