Bauer Media has announced a new monthly incarnation of its Take 5 magazine brand, which will be published in addition to the current weekly title.
According to Take 5 editor Paul Merrill, the move comes in response to strong consumer demand.
“Our readers have told us that they want more real-life stories and puzzles, and research indicates a strong appetite for another magazine in the market, so that’s what we’re delivering,” said Merrill.
“The monthly edition is packed with more real-life stories than any other magazine in Australia.”
The new 84-page Take 5 monthly will be produced by the same team that puts out the weekly edition. May 2018’s Take 5 issue is available now for $4.99 from newsagents and supermarkets.
Bauer reports the Take 5 brand pulls a cross-platform weekly readership of over 731,000.
