Last year, Castle Connolly published its first three specialty magazines specifically targeted to a metropolitan area. Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors: Southern California, Top Doctors: Washington-Baltimore and Top Doctors; Southeastern Texas all achieved a 25-percent sell-through rate and both publications were very successful with advertisers. Castle Connolly will continue to launch several additional Top Doctor specialty magazine publications in markets across the country this year.
