Meredith Brings Subscriptions Back to Coastal Living, Citing “Resounding Success” on Newsstands

After what it called "resounding consumer demand and success" in Coastal Living's first year as a quarterly, newsstand-only magazine, Meredith Corp. announced Tuesday that it is once again selling subscriptions to the 22 year-old title, which it acquired through its merger with Time Inc. at the start of 2018. The news comes a little over a year after declines in print advertising led Meredith Corp. to scale back Coastal Living to a quarterly frequency, forgo a subscription-based model and pursue a more consumer-driven, newsstand-only arrangement.

Up until the end of 2018, Coastal Living was published 10 times per year, with a rate base of 650,000. According to the last available report from the Alliance for Audited Media, reflecting the 12 months ended June 30, 2018, it had 591,225 paid print subscribers and sold an average of 19,467 copies of each issue on newsstands, at $5.99 apiece. Under the newsstand-only model, the cover price has more than doubled, to $12.99, and subscriptions will be priced at $20 for four annual issues or $30 for a two-year commitment. "With a substantial customer base that is looking for premium, high-quality niche content, Coastal Living is a good example of a consumer-driven product with what I'd call an analog paywall," said...
