Elite Magazines.

  • Although long in existence, elite magazines grew in popularity during the age of specialization. Elite magazines are characterized by their combination of literature, criticism, humor, and journalism and by their appeal to highly educated audiences, often living in urban areas. 
  • The most widely circulated elite magazine is the New Yorker which was launched in 1925 by Harold Ross. The New Yorker became the first city magazine aimed at a national upscale audience.  It introduced some of the finest literary journalism of the twentieth century, devoting an issue to John Hersey's Hiroshima and serializing Truman Capote's In Cold Blood. By the mid 1950's the New Yorkers circulation hovered around 500,000.
