American Media, Inc. (AMI) owns and operates the leading celebrity and health & fitness media brands in the country. Our magazines have a combined total circulation of 7.2+ million and reach more than 60 million men and women each month. Our digital properties reach a total of 24+ million unique visitors and 183+ million page views monthly. AMI pioneered both the celebrity and health & fitness categories. During the 1960s, the National Enquirer was the first magazine to begin publishing celebrity news and gossip on a weekly basis. Weider Publications (acquired by AMI in 2003) launched the very first health & fitness magazine, Your Physique, in 1940. Today, AMI’s celebrity titles have the #1 market share in total newsstand circulation in the celebrity category and are the fastest growing brands online. Our health and fitness titles command the #1 market share of national magazine ad pages in their competitive set. AMI created the concept of 360º marketing programs by being the first company to integrate editorial, print, digital, mobile and events into one package for our advertisers. This multi-media platform approach creates lasting consumer engagement and delivers a measurable return on the advertisers’ investment. AMI’s new Publishing Services business unit provides a menu of services, from production and circulation to sales & marketing, for small and mid-sized publishers and is a new revenue stream for the Company. This unit incorporates AMI’s wholly owned subsidiary, Distribution Services Inc. (DSI), the largest sales and merchandising in-store marketing company in the U.S. While maintaining a high profile industry presence, AMI remains streamlined and efficient, with the highest ROS of the top ten consumer publishers in the U.S. This would not be possible without brands that stand for quality—in content, in people and in execution.
