Cumulus To End Country Weekly In Print

Cumulus Media's "NASH Country Weekly" will relaunch in a daily, digital-only form after the publication of the Friday, April 22 print edition.

Cumulus acquired the "Country Weekly" magazine in 2014 and turned it into "NASH Country Weekly."

Editor-in-Chief Lisa Konicky will stay and said "“NASH Country Weekly will relaunch as NASH Country Daily, with Country lifestyle content available exclusively digitally, via Cumulus’ extensive digital footprint, reaching over 1,000,000 Country enthusiasts monthly. This obviously far exceeds the magazine’s current 35,000 print circulation and will enable more up-to-the-minute distribution of content."

Mike McVay, Cumulus Media & Westwood One EVP/Content and Programming added, "“This is a win-win. While enabling exponentially more Country music fans to access NASH content, when and where they choose, it frees significant resources for us to laser-focus and double down on our investment in the properties and platforms of the powerful NASH brand that present the greatest growth potential.  We remain deeply committed to NASH, proud of its cultural significance and influence in the Country community, and optimistic about its future.”
