AdvertisingAge today published an announcement of the folding of CosmoGirl magazine. This follows the trend of several of the teen targeted publications, including Teen People and ElleGirl, which have gone out of print as well.
However, the print-age has not dried up completely. The publisher of CosmoGirl will take on the same role at Hearst’s NEW Food Network magazine. This seems to say that teens are less interested in hard-copy information, while there may still be hope for print in the “mom” demographic. This also reinforces that one of the best target markets to go after is affluent women.
