There’s one sure way to beat your competitors, buy them. Des Moines-based publishing giant Meredith Corporation already produces two magazines targeting moms and dads — called “Parents” and “American Baby.”
Meredith announced it’s purchasing three competing publications, “Parenting,” “Babytalk” and “Conceive.” The sale price was not released.
All three of the competing magazines will publish their last issues in September. Subscibers will be sent the Meredith titles instead.
