Magazine Highlights


Three of Our Most Popular Magazines

In 1888, National Geographic Magazine was founded. The publication was filled with scientific content and colorful photos. Some of the magazine’s early revenue was used to fund scientific expeditions and endeavors. Today, the magazine is a highly respected publication that covers science, geology and world events.

Time Magazine was founded in 1923 by Briton Hadden and Henry Luce, making it America’s first weekly news magazine in the United States. They later changed the name to Time and used the slogan "Take Time - It's Brief". The publication covered the top national and international stories. Today, Time magazine is a leading source for factual, in-depth news articles.

Sports Illustrated was first published in 1954. Initially, Sports Illustrated covered activities geared towards wealthy Americans, such as boating and playing polo. In the 1960s, journalist Andre Laguerre became the assistant managing editor of the fledging publication. Thanks to his leadership, the magazine began focusing on all major sports. Today, Sports Illustrated is famous for its scope and quality of sports coverage.
