Hello! - History

History

Hello was launched in 1988 by publisher Eduardo Sánchez Junco, owner and chairman of Spain’s groundbreaking ¡HOLA! magazine. ¡HOLA! was created in 1944 by husband and wife Antonio Sánchez Gómez and Mercedes Junco Calderón. They wanted to create a light-hearted magazine that focused on weddings, new babies, new loves, and other people-centered, personal stories. Antonio Sánchez Gómez felt that "things of human interest would have pride of place in the magazine, and people more than things." From the beginning, ¡HOLA! regularly sold out and built a reputation for elegance and good taste.

The success of both magazines led to the expansion of the brand across the world, after exports to over 70 countries bolstered the company’s international presence. Today, editions of the magazine are produced in Argentina, Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Greece, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, the Middle East, Morocco, Pakistan, Peru, Puerto Rico, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, the United Kingdom and Venezuela. In total there are 23 editions of the magazine and nine websites.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The awareness that health is dependent upon habits that we control makes us the first generation in history that to a large extent determines its own destiny.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    History is more or less bunk. It’s tradition. We don’t want tradition. We want to live in the present and the only history that is worth a tinker’s damn is the history we make today.
    Henry Ford (1863–1947)

    Every generation rewrites the past. In easy times history is more or less of an ornamental art, but in times of danger we are driven to the written record by a pressing need to find answers to the riddles of today.... In times of change and danger when there is a quicksand of fear under men’s reasoning, a sense of continuity with generations gone before can stretch like a lifeline across the scary present and get us past that idiot delusion of the exceptional Now that blocks good thinking.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
