American Media's magazines have a combined total circulation of 5.7+ million and reach approximately 49.4 million men and women each month. Digital properties reach approximately 65 million unique visitors monthly
American Media, LLC today announced that it has reached an agreement in principle with James Cohen, the owner and CEO of Hudson Media, for the sale of its newsprint tabloids, including the National Enquirer (US and UK editions), Globe and National Examiner. The agreement also includes a multi-year service contract that will generate substantial fees for American Media to provide publishing, financial and distribution services for the tabloid brands.
“The sale of these brands shows their vitality in today’s newsstand marketplace where they continue to generate nearly $30 million in profit annually,” said American Media President and CEO David J. Pecker. “James and his team at Hudsonhave a proven history in publishing and have the market-based knowledge and long-term vision needed to ensure the growth of these brands.”
“Year after year, the Enquirer has continued to be one of the best-selling and most profitable newsstand titles,” said James Cohen. “But this transaction is about more than a weekly publication, it’s about a brand with extraordinary potential across multiple platforms.”
Mr. Cohen said he plans to accelerate the Enquirer’s current collaborations with Investigation Discovery, as well as the documentary shows it produces for REELZ. In addition, he sees exponential growth…

Currently in post-production, the upcoming film, “Blood and Water,” produced by Mohit Soni, is a story that could have been ripped from media headlines, even though it’s set in the 1800s. It’s a tale of privilege, sibling rivalry, hate and greed.
“Blood and Water demonstrates that anyone, good, bad, rich or poor, are capable of forgoing their earthly obligation to family and loved ones in favor of malice and greed,” said Soni. “I was highly moved by the story and its twist.”
The film is a classic story where loved ones turn against each other, reminiscent of Biblical tales, where one brother becomes envious of a sibling and plots against him to take control of a heritage or kingdom he doesn’t deserve. Set in the 1800s, “Blood and Water” is the story of twin sisters that become deadly rivals.
“Blood and Water” offers a new perspective on the typical life of a woman in the 1800s. The characters are strong, independent and empowered women that take control of their own destiny in a Victorian age where women typically didn’t have any power over themselves.
“The film is finishing its last stages of post-production,” said Soni. “It will be sent out to film festivals before we release it on digital platforms, which is planned in late 2020. It took seven months to put the movie together. I was involved in the very early stages of the development process. We had several rewrites of the film to…

adidas' breakthrough closed "LOOP CREATION PROCESS" will produce fully recyclable performance footwear
adidas strengthens its commitment to tackling plastic waste with the reveal of FUTURECRAFT.LOOP – a 100% recyclable performance running shoe.
Together with Parley for the Oceans, adidas introduced in 2015 the first performance footwear concept with an upper made entirely of yarns and filaments reclaimed and recycled from marine plastic waste and illegal deep-sea gillnets. In 2019 adidas will produce 11 million pairs of shoes with Ocean Plastic® by Parley through intercepting plastic waste on beaches, remote islands and in coastal communities. adidas is committed to using only recycled polyester in every product and on every application where a solution exists by 2024. Creating products with premium materials by Parley, made from up-cycled marine plastic waste, is the first pillar of adidas’ sustainability strategy.
“Taking plastic waste out of the system is the first step, but we can’t stop there,” said Eric Liedtke, Executive Board Member at adidas, responsible for Global Brands. “What happens to your shoes after you’ve worn them out? You throw them away – except there is no away. There are only landfills and incinerators and ultimately an atmosphere choked with excess carbon, or oceans filled with plastic waste. The next step is to end the concept of “waste” entirely. Our dream is that you can keep…
