'Nash Country Weekly' Shifting To Digital Only, Relaunching As Daily Content Provider
April 14, 2016 at 9:13 AM (PT)
CUMULUS-owned publication "NASH Country Weekly" TODAY (4/14) announced that it will relaunch in a daily, digital-only form, following publication of its FRIDAY, APRIL 22nd print edition, which is set to feature KELSEA BALLERINI on the cover. CUMULUS acquired Country Weekly magazine in 2014, later morphing it to “NASH COUNTRY WEEKLY” (NET NEWS 2/7/14).
Editor in-Chief LISA KONICKI remains, and said of the transition, “NASH Country Weekly will relaunch as NASH Country Daily, with Country lifestyle content available exclusively digitally, via CUMULUS’ extensive digital footprint, reaching over 1,000,000 Country enthusiasts monthly. This obviously far exceeds the magazine’s current 35,000 print circulation and will enable more up-to-the minute distribution of content.”
Added CUMULUS MEDIA & WESTWOOD ONE EVP/Content and Programming MIKE MCVAY, “This is a win-win. While enabling exponentially more Country music fans to access NASH content, when and where they choose, it frees significant resources for us to laser-focus and double down on our investment in the properties and platforms of the powerful NASH brand that present the greatest growth potential. We remain deeply committed to NASH, proud of its cultural significance and influence in the Country community, and optimistic about its future.”
