Hearst Might Buy Some Time Inc. Mags

Another Time Inc. rumor.

If Time Inc. is interested in shedding some titles, Hearst is (allegedly) all ears.

According to The New York Post, Hearst might consider buying Real Simple, InStyle and Cooking Light. That’s if the price is right and if Time Inc. is bought and broken up.

Time Inc. rumors are all the rage these days. In late November, word emerged that the publisher rejected a bid from Edgar Bronfman Jr., Len Blavatnik and Ynon Kreiz. Then the ages-old Meredith-Time Inc. merger talk picked up steam once again.

Despite the Hearst talk, the Post reports “the interest is little more than an internal wish list at this point.”
