Private Frazer’s Doomed Magazines

The Ex-Factor

A little snippet of news on the Media Bulletin website yesterday about the X Factor magazine. “This year’s final issue of X Factor Magazine is out on Wednesday 15 December.”

Interestingly, when this title was launched back in September the talk was of this being a new weekly that would have a life over and above the television series.  As this news item stated: “The magazine will continue to be produced beyond the end of the current series and will likely have a 51-issue year.”

Hmmm. Couple this with the stories circulating of a less than sparkling sale of the initial, Tesco-exclusive, issue and the departure of the launch editor and this is beginning to look like one of those embarassing auditions by some no-hoper who falls back into obscurity.
