Dr. Samir Husni, “Mr. Magazine,” Honors Leading Food and Entertaining Brand at Min’s 30 Event
NEW YORK – APRIL 15, 2016 – At yesterday’s Min 30 Event, Taste of Home, the leading food and entertaining brand, was honored as one of the 30 hottest magazine launches of the past 30 years. Dr. Samir Husni – also known a “Mr. Magazine” – chose Taste of Home as a key game changer that helped redefine magazine media.
During the past three decades, a total of 23,318 new magazines arrived at the nation’s newsstands and of these, Min tipped its hat to a select few that have contributed to the growth and success of the industry – including Taste of Home.
“It’s an honor that Taste of Home has been chosen from so many other worthy brands and I’m thrilled that we’ve received this industry recognition,” said Catherine Cassidy, Taste of Home Chief Content Officer, who accepted the award. “Taste of Home’s transition from its beginnings as a monthly magazine in 1993 to the leading food and entertaining brand that it is today, has been truly exciting. This accolade from Min and Mr. Magazine is a testament to the Taste of Home team’s continued dedication to innovation and creation of quality content.”
Taste of Home, which debuted in 1993 with the February/March issue, broke ground by entering a competitive market featuring completely user-generated content – which has proven to thrive over the years. While it’s roots remain in user-generated content, Taste of Home has expanded beyond paper to become an interactive exchange of food, memories and ideas that unites and inspires the largest community of home cooks.
Today, the trusted authority is a global food and entertaining brand with content that spans online and social media platforms, interactive live events, engaging cookbooks, video and more.
