06 Aug FE: Plans + Perspective
“She was just like me. She was just like you…she had plans.” ~Oprah
For the first time in 20 years, Oprah Winfrey will not be on the cover of her O, The Oprah Magazine. Instead, she gives Breonna Taylor that honor.
It’s a timely story of refining and realigning, as we’ve covered often with our entrepreneurs and readers. O Magazine will also be shifting to digital content.
The Heart publishing team clarified with
“…the brand is not going away, it is reinventing how it delivers Oprah’s unique perspective on issues including health and well-being, climate change and social justice while continuing to lean into moments that are central to the brand’s DNA. This is a natural next step for the brand, which has grown to an online audience of 8 million, extending its voice and vision with video and social content. We will continue to invest in this platform as the brand grows and evolves into one that is more digitally-centric.”
Oprah Winfrey said: “I’m proud of this team and what we have delivered to our readers over the past 20 years,” said Oprah Winfrey. “I look forward to the next step in our evolution.”
I look forward to watching this evolution and have been checking out some of the podcasts for inspo along the way.
