1105 Media relaunches its K-12 education property ‘THE Journal’ back into print magazine form
The relaunched trade magazine will be published seven times in 2015 and will feature a print and digital circulation of 100,000
The B2B publisher 1105 Media said it would be relaunching the K-12 education title THE Journal back into print starting with the January/February issue. Seven issues will be produced in 2015 and the circulation level has been upped to 100,000 (print and digital).
“THE Journal is a trusted brand within the education community,” said Henry Allain, Chief Operating Officer at 1105 Media. “We couldn’t ignore any longer the pleas from the advertiser community along with our readers to bring the publication back into print. So that’s what we are going to do, and we couldn’t be more excited about our decision.”
The title has remained available in digital form, with a universal app, T.H.E. Journal Magazine, available inside the Apple App Store as a stand-alone app.
“THE Journal will continue to cover topics that address the IT and instructional challenges that today’s educators face, whether it’s teaching to new standards, preparing for online assessments, or managing 1-to-1 initiatives,” editor Christopher Piehler, said in the company’s announcement. “The editorial staff looks forward to reaching even more readers as part of our mission to help educators use technology to improve teaching and learning.”
THE Journal is part of 1105 Media’s Public Sector Media Group.
Late last year, 1105 Media announced that it had hired Rajeev Kapur to be the company’s new CEO, replacing its founding CEO Neal Vitale. Kapur’s background is in tech where he worked for Dell, Sonic Emotion and other companies before joining 1105 Media. Vitale worked at Cahners Business Information leading the group that includes Variety before forming 1105 Media in 2006 through the PE-backed acquisitions of 101communications LLC and Stevens Publishing.
