He’s been following Fatherly since inception and given his personal and professional growth in the men’s lifestyle category, this is the perfect fit at the right time.”

I’ve had my eye on Fatherly for a long time now. They’ve kept me hooked. It’s probably the one thing I subscribe to and read every day,” said Josh Abrams, SVP, Sales. “Dads are an incredibly influential audience segment that have been ignored by publishers for far too long. Fatherly hits on this white space and can offer brands a more meaningful way to break through the clutter and engage the fast-growing demo of Millennial Parents.

That’s the clearest sense of purpose I’ve had in years.”
