“This is my plan, because it makes sense. It’s where the audiences are, and it’s where our growth is."

Glamour magazine is ending its regular print publication to focus on its digital presence, Condé Nast has announced. Condé Nast is the legacy publisher of other magazines like Vogue, Vanity Fair and The New Yorker.

Things for the magazine appeared to be trending in the digital direction - in January, the company hired Samantha Barry as the magazine’s top editor. Barry is a former executive producer for social and emerging media at CNN Worldwide.

“This is my plan, because it makes sense. It’s where the audiences are, and it’s where our growth is," Barry explains, according to The New York Times. "That monthly schedule, for a Glamour audience, doesn’t make sense anymore.”

The magazine has 2.2 million subscribers. Online access to Glamour will remain free, for now.

The editor said the magazine might still publish occasional special print issues.

Glamour’s final regularly published print issue, the January issue, is scheduled to reach newsstands next Tuesday.
