  4. 4. Bauer • Bauer are a large European based media company that manages a portfolio of magazines, digital products, radio and TV stations in local markets across the world. • Bauer produce magazines such as Q and Kerrang, this makes them strong contenders for my own magazine because they are experienced with music magazine publishing.

  14. 14. My Decision… • Having looked at quite a few different media institutions, I have decided the one that would suit my magazine the most would be ‘Republic of Music’ • I have chosen them over the others mainly because they publish the magazine ‘Clash’. I imagine my own magazine to be of a similar style, so I think that as they are experienced in a similar style, they would be the best people for the job.
