- Dennis Publishing has snapped up the UK licenses to publish the fitness titles Men's Fitness and Shape, following the demise of Mollin Publishing.
Mollin, which began publishing the US imports in 1999, went into administration recently. It leaves both titles with an ABC figure around the 50,000 mark, firmly in the shadow of Rodale's sector-leading Men's Health which boasts a circulation of 235,786.
"This is a good strategic decision for Dennis Publishing," said the group managing director Alistair Ramsay. "Both titles fall neatly into our consumer portfolio alongside Maxim and PS and we are very confident that we can make both titles work quickly and effectively in the UK."
