We’re the number 1 in Australia and New Zealand – we publish the best-selling popular magazines and enjoy great success in the corporate publishing sector. And we’re also market leader in the general-interest magazine segment in Poland. In the UK and USA, Bauer Media Group leads the market in weeklies and premium magazines, as well as in the youth, listings and people categories. Worldwide, we’re market leader for female target groups – something we’re very proud of!


We’re constantly expanding our product portfolio with the aid of in-house developments and licensing agreements. For example, our 50-plus women’s magazine Yours in the UK was the inspiration for the German magazine Meins. And we brought the world’s largest brand in the people segment to Germany with PEOPLE Deutschland. Titles like Good Health and Happinez capture the spirit of the times and reflect current trends.



The development of digital media is a core aspect of Bauer Media Group: our digital portfolio includes more than 400 ePapers, apps, online portals and websites – as magazine supplements and as independent products.
