The licence for the New Zealand editions of New Idea, that’s life! and Girlfriend will revert to Pacific Magazines from current publisher New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) from 30 September 2015, both companies announced today.
Pacific Magazines is committed to the New Zealand market and maintaining local knowledge and editorial content as these titles transition back to Pacific management.
Pacific Magazines CEO, Peter Zavecz said: “New Zealand is a vitally important market for Pacific Magazines, our brands remain strong there and we are carefully examining our options to continue to publish locally. I want to thank NZME for their solid partnership and the NZME staff for their hard work and dedication representing our brands. We will continue to discuss options with the staff in the coming weeks.”
