CosmoGirl Folds!!!

CosmoGirl Folds!!!

Hearst Magazines’s CosmoGirl is being shut down, reports WWD.

The teenage spin-off of Cosmopolitan, which targeted teenage girls and featured fashion and celebrities, will finish off with its December issue. (Scarlett Johansson was just featured on its November 2008 cover.)

CosmoGirl‘s subscriber base will be folded into fellow Hearst title Seventeen.

Editor in chief Susan Schulz will be “staying on at Hearst to work on special projects.”

All of these poor teen titles!

Heeey, i’m saad. My sister’s subscribed to that magazine and I sometimes read it too. They tend to have some nice real life stories of sturggle and survival for young girls that I really liked. In fact some of them scared you off so much that you wouldn’t even want to leave your house or be in a 5 mile radius of a male organism.

Thank goodness!! Teach girls to be educated and athletic. Most of that magazine was materialistic fluff.

That’s sad. I used to love CosmoGirl. But once I got to college, I stopped buying all those magazines. I think in the late 90s early 00′s they were really great… and alot of my friends and I bought it.. but now, everything is online, so no one really cares.

Seventeen has been out FOREVER and will continue being one of the top top late teen-early 20s magazines!

being a subsriber of this magazine, this honestly doesn’t bother me a bit or shock me for that matter. this magazine was actually really boring to me and it seemed like it was just another seventeen magazine, just crappier.

teen vogue and seventeen are better

people lost jobs…this is sad. shame on all of you that think this is just about the teen viewership. this is not good for the people involved and the greater good of our current financial situation of the world.

My question becomes what happens if you have a subscription to the magazine that runs longer than December? and are already a subscriber to Seventeen? Does this mean i’ll get my money bacK??

Shocking, with covers like this one.

LOL . . comment #1

There are too many mags out there pretty much with the same content, so this one had to go. I don’t really care, but Seventeen is better I believe.
