Meredith Wants a Health Magazine

Meredith CorpPublisher Meredith (BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS, MORE, FAMILY CIRCLE) CEO Stephen Lacy recently spoke at an investor event and confessed he longed for a health magazine.

According to, he said that with Meredith’s sprawling female-targeted magazine portfolio, the company could benefit from a foundation magazine along the lines of PREVENTION or HEALTH.  “What we could use is an anchor brand in women’s health and well-being.”

Any buys might be 12 to 18 months out, after the company has completed paying down its current debt.  But, he said, “there will be some very good properties that will become available.”
