Teen Vogue Is Shutting Down Its Print Edition—Here's Why
It's the end of an era: As Business of Fashion reports, Teen Vogue will no longer exist as a print magazine. Condé Nast is shuttering the print edition of the magazine as part of an "overall reorganization" at the publisher.
"A Condé Nast spokesperson declined to comment on the reports, although sources at the company indicated the publisher will continue to invest in Teen Vogue's digital platform, which accounts for the majority of the media brand's revenue," BoF reports, indicating that revenues from the print edition did not fare well compared with those of the digital arm of the company.
Although print magazine sales are declining across the board, Teen Vogue has seen major growth online—in fact, the numbers are seriously impressive. "As of October, Teen Vogue's average monthly unique visitors for the year were 8.27 million, according to ComScore, up from 1.4 million when [Digital Editorial Director Phillip] Picardi took over the site in April 2015." In other words, we look forward to seeing more amazing content from Teen Vogue's website.
