The inaugural "Summer of '69" issue will coincide with The New York Times coverage of the 50-year anniversary of that summer. As part of the collaboration, there are plans for five subsequent issues devoted to other historical events, significant milestones and cultural subjects.

"Combining the extraordinary, authoritative content from The New York Times with our broad scale and retail expertise is an unbeatable combination in the marketplace," said Doug Olson, president, Meredith Magazines. "We're thrilled to be collaborating with the Times on this first-ever collaboration that will expand our premium content offerings for a new and existing passionate group of readers."

On the news, Michael Greenspon, global head, NYT Licensing and Print Innovation, added, "For over 160 years, The New York Times has been committed to the belief that great journalism has the power to make a reader's life richer and more fulfilling. Collaborating with Meredith on this series is an opportunity for us to highlight some of our best work, while also attracting more curious and engaged readers."

The partnership marks The New York Times' first standalone magazine on newsstands. The issues will each have a retail price of approximately US$14.99 US and CAN$17.99.
