Hearst Consolidating O at Home Into O: The Oprah Magazine

oathome11.06.08.jpgIn a release announcing that Sarah Gray Miller will be the new editor-in-chief of Hearst Corporation’s Country Living comes the news that the struggling company (not that this adjective sets is apart from other media conglomerates) will fold its O: The Oprah Magazine spinoff, O at Home, back into the original title.

“Hearst will consolidate the content of O at Home back into its flagship, O, The Oprah Magazine, under the direction of editor-in-chief Susan Reed,” the statement reads. “The last standalone issue of O at Home will be Winter 2008, on newsstands November 25.”

It has been a rough year for shelter magazines, which are facing both the decline in advertising revenue and the collapse of the housing market.
