Magazine Boom. Expect a birth announcement for a new magazine from AARP
next spring. The publishers of Modern Maturity plan to launch a title
for the boomer set, and rumor has it that Betsy Carter (formerly editor-in-chief
at New Woman) will be at the helm. If Modern Maturity's 20.2 million
circulation is any indication, the as-yet-unnamed baby book will probably be
a fat one. Stay tuned for pitch tips.
