Ad Age Cuts Publishing Frequency

Ad Age logo GAdvertising Age is cutting back on its publishing frequency. It’s not all bad news though. The magazine said that while it was cutting back to 25 issues per year, the minimum pages found in those issues will increase by 50 percent, as new content gets added.

“The reality is that Ad Age is now a 24-hour news service online, around the world, and so we want to evolve the magazine with content better suited for the print medium,” explained Allison Arden, Ad Age’s publisher, in a statement.

Ad Age is also revamping its website and adding a membership program that promises access to “exclusive content and events.”

In related news, Ad Age has promoted its editor, Abbey Klaassen, to associate publisher, editorial and audience.

Ad Age Revamps Print, Website

Advertising Age has given its print and online versions an update. The magazine is revamped to present a “look and feel that reflects the importance as well as the excitement of this industry,” writes Abbey Klaassen, Ad Age’s editor-in-chief.

To accomplish that goal, Ad Age has ditched jumps, and is presenting all of its content on one page, or on consecutive pages. The magazine also boasts a “companion app,” called Ad Age Interact. The app, created by Nellymoser, allows readers to simply scan articles they’re perusing to share them digitally with friends.

The new is sleeker and cleaner, with updated fonts and easily-navigated subsections. The Opinion section has also been expanded, and there is now a Briefings section that provides all the news readers need in a quick hit format.
