Company: American Media Inc. Timeframe: January 2009-Present Upbeat fitness magazine Shape, owned by American Media Inc. (AMI), has built its editorial platform on hands-on fitness tips and encouragement to help women pursue healthier lifestyles, so face-to-face interaction with subscribers seems a natural brand extension. However, prior to 2009, the magazine had launched mainly one-off events that didn’t have the deep integration with the brand and the magazine’s editorial that internal brand and communications executives hoped for. Shape was also looking for a fresh way to reach advertisers and sponsors.
