After the stirring success of the  X Factor magazine, Tesco have further burnished their magazine selling credentials with the closure of three titles that had been produced exclusively for the grocer.

Food, Home and TV week were launched last October and at the time their  magazine buyer, Charles Hunt, commented, “Our aim is to increase the magazine offering to Tesco shoppers by ranging unique titles that they simply cannot buy elsewhere. We hope this will encourage more shoppers to buy their newspapers and magazines at Tesco, resulting in increased sales for the category as a whole.”

Charles Hunt is no longer at Tesco’s.

  1. Surely the title was “Your TV Week” and I believe the first issue was the Christmas one, not October.

  2. Was this the ‘Your TV Week’ that the NUJ magazine flagged up recently, asking any freelancers who were considering working for them to get in touch? If that wasn’t a heads-up on the magazine folding, I don’t know what is.
