Why might ICP be an appropriate publisher for a new magazine? What sorts of genres ofmusic/types of magazines might they be lightly to publish ?IPC might be an appropriate publisher for a new music magazine as they have beenaround since 1968 to now, so they will have good background knowledge on every sortof thing a magazine might need. They have also done Musical backgrounds alreadywith magazines such as NME. Also IPC hasn’t yet published a RNB/HIPHOP magazine assuch on their market, so it would be good for them as it may be a good selling point forthem to try something new.I think IPC may publish a range of different genres to try them out and see what sellsbest, maybe Hip/Hop or the sort of more grown up magazines like Vibe.Bauer may be an alternative publisher as they also do the same kind of magazines asIPC things like TV times and pick me up etc, so they are similar both might be easy totry out.
