Multiplatform Publisher Hearst Makes Big Moves with Content

We’re pleased to share news on an acquisition that many in the magazine industry believed was coming. Multiplatform publisher Hearst has agreed to buy Rodale Inc., a publishing company we’ve talked about a lot due to the organization’s propensity to follow much of Mequoda’s methodology.

Today we’re looking at this acquisition and what it brings to Hearst. WWD reports, “Rodale, which is based in New York and Emmaus, Pa., publishes Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Prevention, Rodale’s Organic Life, Runner’s World and Bicycling. It also includes Rodale Books and an international division with which Hearst already has a joint venture. The company boasts 93 editions in 64 countries. Hearst Magazines includes 300 editions and web sites around the world, including 20 titles in the U.S.”
