PRINCETON, N.J., March 28, 2005 – The hottest titles on newsstands today will reach out to more American consumers as part of the licensing arrangement announced today by 360ep, an entertainment property management company, and Bauer Publishing.

With a wealth of recognizable properties including In Touch Weekly, Life & Style Weekly, First for Women, and teen favorites Twist and M, Bauer’s mass-market brands touch the lives of women across every demographic.
“Bauer magazines are newsstand staples,” said Russ Brown, President, 360ep. “And their growth just seems to continue-in fact, in the last half of 2004, In Touch Weekly, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations 2004 FAS-FAX report, saw the greatest newsstand circulation jump over all magazines during that period. So, in order to further leverage the great brand strength of these magazines, licensing these properties makes great sense.”
