Hamburg, 01 November 2010 –
Gruner + Jahr International will begin publishing the Portuguese edition of Cosmopolitan magazine under license from February 2011. Cosmopolitan has been the leading women's magazine in Portugal since 1992, and is the bestselling young women's publication worldwide, with separate editions in 60 countries.
Cosmopolitan is published by the Hearst Magazines International media corporation, which has now found a strong partner for Portugal in G+J International. The two publishers have a longstanding, mutually trusting cooperation; Gruner + Jahr International already successfully publishes the magazine in Spain and several eastern European countries.
G+J already has a successful presence in the Portuguese market with the popular-science magazine SUPERINTERESSANTE and the parenting title BEB;Eacute; D'HOJE, as well as the Motorpresse publications AUTO HOJE, GUIA DO AUTOM;Oacute;VEL, MOTOR CL;Aacute;SSICO, MEN'S HEALTH, SPORT LIFE and MOTOR CL;Aacute;SSICO and other magazines in the Automotive, Sports and Recreation, and Lifestyle segments.
Sandra Mauricio will be the editor-in-chief of Portuguese Cosmopolitan.
Dr. Torsten-Jörn Klein, a member of the G+J executive board and President of G+J International, says: "We very much look forward to adding the Portuguese Cosmopolitan license to our existing and very successful cooperation with Hearst Magazines International. Cosmopolitan in Portugal is a strategically important step in developing our business on the Iberian Peninsula and strengthens our positioning in the women's magazines segment."
