THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER is a new free weekly magazine focused on national politics and policy, investigative reporting and commentary. It’s a reincarnation of the newspaper with the same title, which ceased publication this week.
However, the new magazine will not cover local news.
“We have made a name for ourselves with our newspaper and expect to make an even bigger impact with an expanded staff focusing on national issues,” said Editor Stephen G. Smith. However, The Denver Business Journal reported that The Washington Examiner has also laid off 70% of its staff.
A memo published by the Washington City Paper describes the new magazine as “a center-right version of political publications like The Hill.”
The magazine will be aimed at leaders in government, politics, advocacy groups, public affairs and academia. It’ll have a circulation of 42,000 and be distributed in locations in the Washington D.C. region. 12,000 will be shipped to the nation’s 50 statehouses.
Denver-based Clarity Media Group owns The Washington Examiner. Smith can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

TEMPUS is a new quarterly magazine that covers art, culture and issues surrounding our society for an elite readership.
Each issue includes: Vignettes – timely and interesting cultural happenings; Style and Culture – where art, home, fashion, and all things luxurious meet; People – especially interesting and accomplished individuals; and View – celebration of the visual and written arts.
“The common theme is that everything you find in these pages will be something that resonates with those of us who share a global view in our personal and professional lives,” said Tempus Jets CEO Scott Terry.
One of the magazine’s goals is to initiate interest and foster awareness of social issues, which are not usually found in a magazine published by a jet company. For example, the first issue covers the charitable initiative Global Flight Relief, and Ben Affleck’s trip to eastern Congo to promote economic programs.
Tempus Magazine is targeted at the top 1% of the top 1%. The average net worth of its readers is $89 million. It’s distributed to private jet owners and fortune 500 CEOs, executive airports, private charter flights and private events. Tempus is published by Tempus Jets and its editorial office is located in Greenville, SC. Jackson Bacot is the editor-in-chief, email@example.com.

SHE is a new biannual magazine full of inspirational stories that illustrate the way donations to the Canadian Women’s Foundation have helped women and girls in Canada move out of poverty and violence.
It features personal success stories and practical how-to articles.
Editor Diane Hill said in a Masthead article, “We want the magazine to include clear actions people can take … We want them to support us and engage with us, but we also want to connect people to ways they can take action in their daily life.”
The Canadian Women’s Foundation is a nonprofit organization that relies on the support of volunteers and donors to produce She Magazine. The Foundation printed a limited number of magazines to send to its donors, but it’s essentially a free digital magazine. Hill can be reached at email@example.com.

NAUTILUS is a new quarterly magazine to be launched in September that weaves science, culture and philosophy into a single story, according to an article in FOLIO.
However, before launching a print publication, Nautilus is building an audience online. Each month the editorial team chooses one topic and each Thursday they post new articles on that topic, exploring it from different angles and through a variety of mediums, such as essay, investigative report, blog post, game, video, and even fiction or graphic story. Its inaugural issue is “What Makes You So Special.” Once the fall magazine is distributed, the website will be updated quarterly with new content, instead of weekly.
At its core, Nautilus is still essentially a science magazine. Its website describes the publication as big-picture science. “Nautilus lets science spill over its usual borders. We are science, connected.”
The magazine has received a financial grant from the John Templeton Foundation, which encourages dialogue among scientists, philosophers and theologians, and the general public.
This magazine is published by Nautilus Ventures, based in New York City. Michael Segal is the editor-in-chief, and story ideas and pitches should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

CHERRY BOMBE is a new biannual magazine that celebrates women and food—those who grow it, make it, serve it, study it, enjoy it and everything in between.
This magazine explores women’s contribution to the indie food scene, and almost all of its contributors are women, as well. It features a variety of cultures, cuisines and people, including chefs, servers, food stylists and scientists, culinary icons and up-and-coming entrepreneurs. The magazine is described on its Kickstarter page as, “sustenance and style and the things that nourish the mind, the eye and, of course, the stomach.” The first issue hits bookstores May 10.
Recently, I’ve blogged about print publications that have been born from websites with a huge following, such as ALLRECIPES, or publications that are purposefully building an audience online before launching in print, such as NAUTILUS. Cherry Bombe is an example of the exact opposite tactic. At $18 per issue, the founders are hoping to create a publication that lands on the bookshelf, not in the recycling bin. And according to their Kickstart page, the Cherry Bombe website will connect their community of readers but not duplicate any of its print content. “We’ll have plenty to offer the person who still loves the printed page and having an actual, physical thing to read and linger over.”
This magazine will be available in select bookstores, magazine shops and boutiques worldwide. Cherry Bombe is the creation of Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu, former colleagues at HARPER’S BAZAAR, email@example.com.
