Romance fades

THREE of Britain's best- known romantic magazines have disappeared from newsagents.

Bunhill: Express 'Eve ho

DID Eve Pollard, the deposed editor of the Sunday Express, know that she was about to fall? I think the answer is yes.

An old boy looks for new European: Correction

On our media page of 17 August we published an article which dealt with recent changes at the European newspaper. We should make it clear that we did not intend to suggest that Gregory MacLeod, the paper's former manager, had a management style which was inappropriate or that he ousted the then editor of the European, Charles Garside. In addition we wrongly suggested that during the course of Mr MacLeod's tenure as manager of the newspaper, sales of the European began to fall and that as a result Mr MacLeod was fired.

Media: Talk of the Trade: 'Standard' sales up

THE London Evening Standard is selling an extra 50,000 copies on Fridays, 10 per cent more than its regular circulation of 500,000, since it began to distribute its free weekly magazine section, ES Magazine, six weeks ago. Anthony Hilton, the paper's managing director, says this is a better increase than he expected. Although the old monthly ES Magazine raised sales by about 15 per cent on the day it appeared, the total number of extra readers over the month is now significantly higher. In spite of that, the new magazine is not budgeted to make a profit in its first year. It is of the enhanced newsprint type pioneered by the Independent on Sunday. 'The old-style glossy supplement may be coming to the end of its days,' says Mr Hilton.
