Classic FM has dealt a blow to John Brown Publishing by terminating
its agreement to publish its high-profile monthly magazine.
The contract has instead been awarded to Haymarket Magazines. Haymarket,
which publishes Campaign as well as customer titles for the British
Tourist Authority and for Liverpool FC, will take over the contract to
publish the magazine in November.
Classic FM magazine, which was launched in February 1995, has an ABC of
38,322 with a total monthly readership of 223,000. Under the terms of
the deal, cross-promotion opportunities with Gramophone, which Haymarket
acquired last year and which has an ABC of 50,320, are in development.
