Today Bauer Media have confirmed their UK Publishing portfolio review has concluded.
The magazines and digital properties for Sea Angler, Car Mechanics and Your Horse are to move under ownership of Kelsey Media. Modern Classics and Q are to cease publication with immediate effect.
The final printed and downloadable digital edition of Q will be issue 415 on sale 28 July, and Modern Classics will be the September issue on sale 29 July.
Chris Duncan, CEO UK Publishing, said:
“We are pleased to have found such suitable new owners in Kelsey Media who can extend the life of these magazines and we wish the brands and teams every success for the future.”
“We have been unable to find equivalent new owners for Q and for Modern Classics and have decided to cease publication of these titles with immediate effect. We thank those teams for their work on these iconic titles.”
“These tough decisions were made to help us recover and rebuild through the Covid-19 crisis. We will continue that process with our remaining portfolio of world class titles.”
