Spry Magazine Debuts With Circulation of 9.2 Million
Franklin, Tenn.-based Publishing Group of America launched Spry magazine this week with a circulation of more than 9.2 million. Spry is a monthly health and fitness magazine delivered via newspapers including The Washington Times, The Florida Times Union, The New York Daily News, The San Jose Mercury News and The Los Angeles Daily News.
"Spry shatters the myth that there is no room for mass-distributed magazines anymore," says Samir Husni, chair of the University of Mississippi's journalism department and also known as Mr. Magazine. "Spry provides clear evidence that a well-targeted, special-interest publication, can and will make it in today's marketplace."
The Publishing Group of America is also home to American Profile, which was the second-largest magazine launch in U.S. history according to the company, Relish and Texas Profile magazines.
