Glamor magazine is becoming digital.
After 80 years, Conde Nast announced On Tuesday, the women's lifestyle magazine will end its monthly print edition, opting to focus solely on multimedia content.
"In 2019, we will be duplicating digital, expanding video and social storytelling with new and ambitious projects," wrote Glamor's official Twitter account on Tuesday, sharing the vision of the new chief editor Samantha Barry.
Glamor said he will continue to "celebrate great moments" with special editions instead of a monthly print edition: "Our narration and our service will continue to reach the audience of Glamor on the platforms they frequent the most, which means that we will use Print as they do our audiences. "
The last monthly print edition, the January 2019 issue, will arrive at the kiosks next week.
"On all platforms, Glamor is the ultimate authority for the next generation of change makers, leading conversations, informing and entertaining," said Barry. "As we approach our 80s, I think this is more true than ever before."
The announcement comes a year after the company closed the print editions of Teen Vogue and Self Magazine, a measure to reduce the expenses assigned to the printing business in decline.
The New York Times, which was the first to break the news, reported that Conde Nast, the publisher of Vogue and Vanity Fair, lost more than $ 120 million last year.
