New York Mag Goes Biweekly

Will bulk up online with new hires, content

Underscoring the difficulties facing print media, New York magazine today confirmed speculation that it’s going biweekly. Starting with the March 3, 2014, issue, the 45-year-old magazine will publish 29 issues annually, down from 42, while expanding its online presence. In print, New York will feature three new special issues devoted to single topics (best doctors, gift guide, food and drink); 20 percent more editorial content; a new fashion section, the Cut; and new columnists. Nymag.com will grow its coverage of verticals like Vulture and the Cut with 15 new hires and introduce a new Instagram channel, along with additional mobile and native advertising opportunities.
