Time Inc. Launches People in Greece

peoplegreece03312010.jpgTime Inc., together with Greek communications company Imako, is launching a Greek version of People “at the end of March,” which, oh look, is today!

Although the magazine already has some international and foreign-language exposure (People also publishes in India and Australia, and People en Espanol caters to an American audience), the Greece edition of People is the first foreign-language version distributed in a foreign country.

Nansy Zabetoglou is heading up the newsroom as People Greece‘s editor in chief. Katerina Nika, formerly at Maxim, is advertising manager. Olga Tsaousi, formerly of InStyle, is advertising manager.

Says Imako Media’s press release, presumably originally written in Greek:

PEOPLE has a unique blend of celebrity, news, entertainment, service and photography. The magazine is trusted by celebrities and real-life heroes alike to tell their stories with accuracy and fairness. Each week readers are offered the chance to delight in the pop culture landscape, but, along with that escapism, there are opportunities to be inspired by the generosity and grace of everyday individuals.
