George Magazine Folds
The late John F. Kennedy Jr.'s fabled George magazine stopped publishing this month. After a year-long effort to rejuvenate the ailing publication after Kennedy's death, the magazine's final issue is a tribute to its deceased founding editor.
Published by Hachette Filipacchi Magazines, George has been suffering from economic woes under two new restructuring campaigns with low advertising revenue. And while circulation reportedly rose by almost 25 percent in 2000, the publishing company made the decision to fold the magazine after much debate about content, direction and ultimately how to succeed Kennedy's vision. George is described as a politico-meets-celebrity book that covers hard politics and famous lifestyles, a combination that didn't fall far from its founder's own legacy.
