16 Magazine - No Advertising Policy

No Advertising Policy

Despite the lack of serious journalistic content and fierce competition from Tiger Beat and other celebrity magazines, 16 remained the top selling teen celebrity magazine for many years. They accomplished this feat without accepting any outside advertising. Even without advertising revenue, at the height of its popularity, 16 Magazine had more than 5,000,000 readers.

For at least 30 years of publishing, 16 Magazine was entirely self-supporting. The "no advertisements" policy changed when 16 Magazine was acquired by Primedia in the 1990s. In 2001, 16 became part of their Teen Magazines groups and is considered a monthly "specials" issue focusing on a specific topic or act.

Despite this, no regular or special issue of 16 Magazine was seen or published since—not even a website. By this time, newer teen magazines had taken over, such as J14, M Magazine, Popstar! Magazine, and the "resurrected" Tiger Beat.

Famous quotes containing the words policy and/or advertising:

    We legislate against forestalling and monopoly; we would have a common granary for the poor; but the selfishness which hoards the corn for high prices, is the preventative of famine; and the law of self-preservation is surer policy than any legislation can be.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Life is beset by many annoyances, and those that stand out above all are the life- insurance and advertising agents.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)
