Publisher, Media24 Lifestyle, says it has transferred the publishing rights to the creative living magazine Ideas/Idees and the women’s monthly Lééf to the respective former editors.
This follows the announcement in November 2016 that Media24 would cease publishing these two titles and topCar, and relinquish its international licences to Top Gear and Grazia.
“We couldn’t wish for a better solution than Ideas/Idees and Lééf remaining part of the local magazine media landscape; they are strong and well-established niche brands with highly engaged audiences,” said Ishmet Davidson, GM of Media24 Print Media.
Ideas/Ideas will continue as a two-monthly printed and digital magazine in Afrikaans and English, with a social media offering. The first new issue is scheduled to be on shelves in March.
Lééf’s future will be digital only, with a new website – to be launched shortly – and a social media presence for the main brand, and social media only for its spin-off brand, Mooi soos ‘n Beminde.
