Ascend Integrated Media has solidified distribution for the release of its first print issue of Ascend’s Golden Guide magazine. More than 300 locations around the metropolitan Kansas City area will offer copies of the issue after it launches in early May.

Ascend will publish more than 35,000 copies and distribute the magazine to 62 area CVS pharmacies, 12 Kmarts and three Sears locations as well as nearly 225 libraries, community centers, hospitals, home health care supply stores and service organizations for seniors. Also, as part of the distribution plan, Kansas City’s Meals On Wheels will distribute the publication to nine of its distribution centers and its Johnson County clients.

The first print issue of Ascend’s Golden Guide will feature 80 pages of targeted articles for Baby Boomers and the seniors in their lives. It will provide timely articles and invaluable tips and advice covering all aspects of senior needs and living.

“The fact that we have secured this many distribution points throughout Kansas City underscores our commitment to this product,” said Cam Bishop, CEO of Ascend Integrated Media. “A number of my colleagues and I have needed information quickly to help our aging parents. Unfortunately, we were usually responding to a health crisis and needed the information immediately. Although there are numerous options in the Kansas City area, there is no central resource for finding that information and the companies quickly and easily.”

Ascend’s Golden Guide and its online directory are intended to provide that resource. Along with providing complete contact information for companies offering products and services for seniors, the guide provides comparative information, reviews, expert advice and directional resources.

“The print issue is the second element in our multichannel approach of getting valuable information into the hands of our audience. Besides the print issue, online resource guide and mobile-enabled website, we plan to launch the tablet app the first of June,” said Rhonda Wickham, Vice President of Content at Ascend. “Baby Boomers are accustomed to nearly ubiquitous access to information how, when and where they want it. That is why we are providing this information in print, online, on tablet, on mobile and through social media channels.”
