Cabal Communications is to step up its presence in the men’s

magazine market with the launch of two magazines in March 2000.



One title will be a monthly lifestyle magazine aimed at men aged 25 and

over. Push, the former editor of IPC’s dance magazine, Music, will edit

the title and Mark Wernham, a former section editor on IPC’s Melody

Maker, has been appointed deputy editor.



Push said: ’The magazine will be different from anything out there. We

are aiming for a slightly older audience than Loaded and FHM.’



Push and Wernham came up with the idea for the magazine and approached a

number of companies to produce it, including Cabal.



Matt Snow, editor of Emap Metro’s rock music magazine, Mojo, is leaving

the company to join Cabal and launch a second magazine in the men’s

market.



Andy Sutcliffe, managing director of Cabal, said: ’Matt Snow’s magazine

will be aimed at the older men’s market, while Push’s title will be a

hip, urban magazine.’



Sutcliffe said that both magazines aimed to eventually achieve a

circulation of around 100,000. A list of ad agencies will be drawn up in

the next couple of months to work on launch campaigns for the new

magazines.



Cabal already has a presence in the men’s magazine market with Front,

launched last October, which achieved an average monthly sale of 140,154

in the six months to June.
