Glamour Magazine, 1939 – 2019

Glamour magazine is packing it in after 80 years. Founded by Condé Nast in 1939, Glamour is the latest women’s/fashion magazine to come to an end. Condé Nast pulled the plug on Teen Vogue last year, and Hearst publishing announced last week that as of next year, Seventeen magazine would no longer be regularly published. The once lucrative business of print publishing is quickly winding down. Condé Nast reported making 120 million less than projected last year which has resulted in some serious belt tightening, including putting up several magazine titles for sale including Brides and W. The last issue of Glamour will be January 2019.
