The final issue of CosmoGIRL! Magazine will be this December, as Hearst Magazines has decided to close shop on the teen fashion rag, to concentrate on its most successful publication, Seventeen magazine.
Hearst Magazines has folded Cosmogirl. December will be the final issue. Editor in chief Susan Schulz will remain with the company. It’s the second Hearst title to fold this year; Quick & Simple went over the summer.
Statement: Hearst Magazines has made a strategic decision to consolidate its teen publishing activities into Seventeen, the largest-selling monthly teen magazine on newsstands. Effective with the December issue, CosmoGirl will cease as a print magazine, remaining online only at cosmogirl.com. CosmoGirl’s subscriber base will be folded into Seventeen.
