Hearst Sets Launch for First Issue of Dr. Oz, The Good Life

Hearst Magazines will roll out its newest title, Dr. Oz, The Good Life, Feb. 4. With 800,000 copies being distributed, including 375,000 copies on newsstands for $3.99 and another 425,000 going to subscribers of other Hearst titles, The Good Life could well be the biggest consumer magazine launch this year. With The Good Life, Hearst hopes to replicate the stratospheric rise of its other mass, celebrity-based titles. Food Network Magazine rose to a circulation of 1.7 million from a launch distribution of 300,000, while HGTV Magazine grew to 1.1 million from 350,000 at launch.

Oz will appear on the cover of the first several issues of the magazine and throughout. He'll write front-of-book letters to the reader, a page introducing the issue’s contributors, a food column and a back page essay. “I’ll do what needs to be done to help the magazine appeal to people," Oz told Adweek. "If I need to be on every cover, I will be.” He also weighed in on the color of the pilot's cover, a deliberately gender-neutral blue. “I always felt strongly that we treat women too delicately, and putting a little testosterone in the message makes them...
