Time Inc. UK announces today that it is rebranding to TI Media. The news follows the company’s acquisition by private equity firm Epiris from Meredith Corporation in March 2018, with the new name taking effect from Monday 11 June 2018. The company’s new logo will also be unveiled the same day.
Marcus Rich, Time Inc. UK CEO, said: “We are proud of all we have achieved as Time Inc. UK over the last four years and, before that, as IPC Media over many years. While we wanted our new name to speak to that successful past – with the T of Time Inc. and the I of IPC – we also wanted it to be adaptable to suit the ways we will evolve and look to extend that success under our new ownership. We are now looking forward to exploring those new opportunities as TI Media.”
Sir Bernard Gray, executive chairman, added: “As a company, TI Media is proud of its past and confident of the future. Our new name opens the next chapter of our story with familiarity and new energy.”
Time Inc. UK’s 40-plus brands reach 16.4 million* UK adults monthly across print and digital. Its portfolio spans a range of interest areas, from entertainment and women’s lifestyle to luxury, sports and technology. Amongst its titles are household names such as Woman’s Weekly, Country Life, Ideal Home and Trusted Reviews, as well as specialist titles such as Decanter, Wallpaper*, Cycling Weekly and Horse & Hound. Its entertainment titles, including What’s on TV and TV Times, sell more than a million copies each week.
In connection with the rebranding, Time Inc. UK will change its legal name to TI Media Limited, also effective from 11 June 2018.

“That’s what I thought. I’m ready for this. And I was excited. I had spent five years in digital; I was excited to be able to return to the media I had fallen in love with, which was print. That was the thing that defined my decision to become a magazine person in the first place. I had been a maniacal print obsessive for my whole childhood. And spending those years in digital really helped me have perspective on consumers and consumer behaviour.” - Kate Lewis, chief content officer, Hearst Magazines14th Feb 2019 Features
