Meredith Corporation’s Special Interest Media Group and The New York Times Company are introducing a series of Times-branded special edition publications that will be available at Meredith’s Magazine Store, Amazon and on retail newsstands nationwide beginning July 26.
The inaugural “Summer of ’69” issue will coincide with The New York Times coverage of the 50-year anniversary of that summer. As part of the collaboration, there are plans for five subsequent issues devoted to other historical events, significant milestones and cultural subjects, according to the Times.
“Combining the extraordinary, authoritative content from The New York Times with our broad scale and retail expertise is an unbeatable combination in the marketplace,” said Doug Olson, president, Meredith Magazines. “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with the Times on this first-ever collaboration that will expand our premium content offerings for a new and existing passionate group of readers.”
The venture marks The New York Times’ first standalone magazine on newsstands. The issues will each have a retail price of approximately $14.99.
