Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
Crime Monthly will deliver a new take on real crime and comes at a time when interest in the subject is at an all-time high, thanks to an explosion of crime documentaries on main TV channels; dedicated crime channels running 24-hour content; hit Netflix series including Ted Bundy: Conversations With A Killer, Evil Genius and Making A Murderer, and popular podcasts, such as the global smash-hit Serial.
Issue one of Crime Monthly will hit newsstands on Thursday 7 March with a special introductory cover price of £1.99.
Meanwhile, the UK’s biggest women’s weekly Take a Break is also launching another print brand extension this week. Take a Break Makes is a new magazine for the enthusiastic crafter and is the first of a number of Take a Break specials planned in 2019.
Take a Break Makes offers easy-to-follow step-by-step guides on how to create show-stopping makes, including papercraft, jewellery, fashion, garden furniture and home décor. Aimed at all levels of expertise, each make is beautifully photographed to ensure readers can achieve outstanding results – whether they have an hour to spare, a weekend or just ten minutes.
Take a Break Makes hits newsstands on Thursday 7 March, priced at £1.99 and will remain on sale for eight weeks.
Bauer Media UK’s Group Managing Director Rob Munro-Hall commented: “What better way to demonstrate Bauer’s ongoing commitment to print than launching two magazines in the same week. We continue to invest in new magazines knowing that they delight readers and offer advertisers exceptional value because of the high quality attention they command. This was highlighted in Magnetic’s recently published report Pay Attention: Magazine’s Role in the Media Mix
which showed that very significant long-term brand value was created for advertisers who used trusted magazines.“
