According to the publisher, the titles are no longer profitable. The final version of Girlz will be out this week and the final version of Cosmogirl will be on shelves in mid-June.
Only online since 2017
Hitkrant has ceased to exist as a physical biweekly magazine since 2017. The magazine still has a website and publishes a special newspaper six times a year. So this is gone.
After the physical magazine disappeared, the Hitkrant editors were put together with the Girl Editorial Board. Editors working for these titles were considered redundant. It is not known how many people were involved. Other publisher titles such as Vriendin, HP / De Tijd, and Weekend will continue to exist.
People remember the magazine online as a result of the news. Like this guy who met his wife via the magazine:
It’s not the first news in the magazine scene today. It was also announced earlier today that the Hearst Publishing House will stop with a number of titles. These include men’s magazine Esquire and Vogue fashion. Another publisher of the latter is still being searched for.
Hearst’s portfolio has shrunk from twenty to twelve titles. As a necessary reason for the reorganization, Hearst cites “changes in consumer behavior, advertiser needs, and media consumption” that have been “accelerated” by the coronavirus crisis.
