Drew will be published by Bauer Media USA, a subsidiary of Bauer Media Group that counts Woman’s World and First for Women among its titles. Barrymore will sit at the helm of the editorial team as editor in chief, with writer Crystal Meers serving as editorial director and Joanna Bean Martin and Naz Sahin of AfterAll Studio in charge of creative direction. The premiere issue, priced at $9.99, will first hit shelves at Walmart, where Barrymore recently launched a kitchenware line, on June 14, and other newsstands a week later.
The launch of Drew magazine comes amid a period of prolonged challenges in fashion and lifestyle media, particularly in print. Publications with star power are no exception: Last year, Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine, a joint venture with publisher Hearst, ceased regular print publication, though Winfrey and Hearst launched a new digital publication, Oprah Daily, and quarterly print publication this month.
