According to Campaignlive.co.uk, Mixmag Media has completed a double acquisition of weekly rock magazine Kerrang! and The Face from Bauer Media.
The Face will be revived as a digital brand, but Mixmag Media’s Jerry Perkins’ initial focus is reported to be on Kerrang! and, in particular, its digital offering.
Speaking to Campaign, Perkins spoke of the appeal of the Kerrang! brand: “Kerrang! is a trusted brand because of the years of passion, knowledge and profound enthusiasm that have gone into producing it, week in, week out.”
