Bloomberg ends print Bloomberg Pursuits
Bloomberg Pursuits is folding its print product, reports Becky Peterson of Folio, as the luxury magazine will cease print publication after its current December issue.
Peterson writes, “The digital edition will live on, and online content will remain free to all audiences. In addition, the October-launched show ‘Bloomberg Pursuits’ will continue to air on Bloomberg TV, and luxury reports will continue on Bloomberg Radio. No personnel changes are expected at this time.
“‘We’re deliberately shifting Bloomberg Pursuits to a digital-first brand for our audience of global business decision-makers, which will include a continued commitment to luxury content that will appear across our multiple platforms,’ a Bloomberg spokesperson said in a statement.
“The Pursuits brand launched in 2012 as a biannual print offering, but increased frequency twice: up to quarterly in 2013, and up to six issues a year in March 2016.
“Ted Moncreiff, editor-in-chief of the magazine until 2014, told Folio: in 2013 that the magazine increased to quarterly due to demand from its audience. The magazine has a global rate base of 375,000, but this number is stagnant due to the exclusive nature of its distribution.”
