Hearst Magazines Netherlands to take over publishing local edition of Cosmopolitan
Hearst Magazines Netherlands
is to take over the publishing of Cosmopolitan
from Sanoma Media Netherlands
on 1 January 2013.
Eighteen months ago, as part of its global acquisition of former Lagardère businesses, Hearst Magazines
acquired the business in the Netherlands. On 1 January 2013 the license agreement for Cosmopolitan
with Sanoma Media Netherlands expires, and Hearst Magazines Netherlands will start publishing the title.
Duncan Edwards, CEO, Hearst Magazines International
, said: “I would like to thank Sanoma for the excellent job they have done publishing Cosmopolitan
in the Netherlands for 30 years. Sanoma remains Hearst’s most significant partner in international publishing, and we hope and expect this important relationship to continue to develop.”
