We're elated to unveil our magazine, one that is already luring in an audience of professional and educated like minds from diverse backgrounds
(PRWEB) June 15, 2009
A new vibrant and classy international magazine has officially launched.
Thursday Night Magazine (http://www.thursdaynightmagazine.com) will arouse readers in every sense as the worldly publication provides a tactful edginess in the life of crime, politics, power, sex, arts and entertainment, and style and design. The magazine also offers readers fiction stories, and essays on compelling issues that encompass life in Canada, the USA and UK.
"We're elated to unveil our magazine, one that is already luring in an audience of professional and educated like minds from diverse backgrounds," says Paul Fitzgerald, who is the Editor of the new publication. He is also the President and CEO of Salt & Pepper Media Inc., a global publications relations firm active in Canada, the USA, the UK and Spain. The magazine is an official division of Salt & Pepper Media Inc.
"The magazine is like no other: controversial in one sense, yet at the same time candid and engaging. In all, the stories we provide capture the truth for our readers seeking a real insight to fascinating people, places and things," adds Fitzgerald.
Journalists and photographers from The LA Times, The Daily Mirror, World News Now, AM New York, and The New York Magazine, among others, contributed to the inaugural issue.
"Our pool of talented writers and photographers are the ones who will take our readers in Canada, the USA and the UK on a sophisticated and urbane adventure, there's no doubt about it," says Fitzgerald.
The June 4 issue of Thursday Night Magazine has many unique stories including an exclusive story on Ron Wood (Rolling Stone's guitarist), an interview with Noam Chomsky (esteemed academic and author), and feature stories on Laura Nurse (International Model) and Raylene (Vivid).
Probing the Barack Obama movement is another feature story. Also, the magazine provides an interview with Craig Hopson, who was recently named the new Executive Chef at Le Cirque, a high-end establishment in Manhattan, New York City.
And just when readers think they have enough to digest, they will also be impressed with feature stories on Susan Boyle (the poor singer from Scotland now famous), Texas prisoners who work to make State license plates, and an exclusive interview with the Gemini Reynolds who is the girlfriend of Charles Bronson, one of Britain's most notorious prisoners behind bars. Reynolds recently released a book, Bronson's Bird. The magazine also features a story on residents of Vauban, Germany who have banned cars in its neighbourhood as a move to protect the environment.
There are lots of well known columnists contributing to magazine. Dr. Charmaine Saunders (author of The Stress Handbook for Women, and Sex: Everything you Want to Know), answers readers question on the topic of sex. Rich Halliday (owner of R.H. Studio and beauty anchor on CTS Television Real Life), provides his expertise on the latest trends in style and design for our fans. And, Nina Gaskell (who appears regularly on the popular TV shows Ready Steady Cook, F Word and Breaking into Tesco) offers readers her specialty "urbane" summer cooking recipe.
"These are exciting times and all of us -- the editors, writers, photographers and graphic designers -- are thrilled with the magazine, one that has meaning and one that will most importantly entertain while at the same time educate," says Fitzgerald.
He indicates that Thursday night is a popular evening in Canada, the USA and the UK for people to socialize. This is why he and his team came up with the name Thursday Night Magazine.
"Thursday Night for many is the last night of the work week, and it's a time where people go out for dinner, attend shows, concerts, and sporting events. It's even a night where people gather to mingle over drinks and coffee - it's indeed a social night. We want to connect with it and deliver on its meaning in every sense," says Fitzgerald.
The magazine will be published every two months online, and on Thursday evening of each week, stories and blogs will be regularly updated for its readers. The publication will also be available on Kindle, which is Amazon's wireless reading device. The number of readers turning to Kindle -- a new technological phenomenon -- for books, newspapers and magazines continues to grow in popularity. Thursday Night Magazine will be one of only 30 magazines available through this high-tech marvel.
While the magazine will remain online to reduce its carbon footprint and follow in the trend of online readers, the editors will soon announce a "Special Collectors Issue of Thursday Night Magazine" once a year starting in late 2010. This one time issue will only be printed on a per order basis and will contain all the top stories over the duration of one year.
Fitzgerald stresses that while Thursday Night Magazine is poised for tremendous growth, it is also committed to giving back to others.
Five percent of the publication's advertising revenue will go towards the creation of three scholarships for journalism students (undergraduate and graduate) in Canada, the USA and the UK. As revenue grows, more scholarships will be awarded accordingly. Details of scholarship awards are now posted online.
"The cost of tuition is always rising in these three countries, so we want to lend a hand and help our future journalists of tomorrow," he says.
