/// Hearst Sets Launch for First Issue of Dr. Oz, The Good Life

January 27, 2014  |  Media Week

Hearst Magazines will roll out its newest title , Dr. Oz, The Good Life, Feb. 4. With 800,000 copies being distributed, including 375,000 copies on newsstands for $3.99 and another 425,000 going to subscribers of other Hearst titles, The Good Life could well be the biggest consumer magazine launch this year. With The Good Life, Hearst hopes to replicate the stratospheric rise of its other mass, celebrity-based titles. Food Network Magazine rose to a circulation of 1.7 million from a launch distribution of 300,000, while HGTV Magazine grew to 1.1 million from 350,000 at launch. With celebrity-based magazines, there's no guarantee the allure will last, though, as Hearst well knows; O, the Oprah Magazine, while still one of its biggest titles with a 2.4 million circulation, has struggled on the newsstand lately.
